While we were in Mississippi, we visited the U.S.S Alabama. I have been hesitant to post this because I do not want to misinform people. This was such a great experience though that I figure I should post at least the pictures and what I do or was able to figure out.
It amazes me that the bullseye is so small. I am so glad that the men manning the guns had amazing eyesight! I barely could see. The kids and I all climbed up onto the seats and sat for a moment looking through the scope and trying to make the seat turn. Sitting in the seat’s was very uncomfortable and cold.. I can’t even imagine having to sit there for hours battling with the enemy.. Can you imagine it?
The flags helped with communication.
The below pictures are inside one of the turrets on the ship.
If you have stuck with me this far I have provided a link about the U.S.S Alabama below.
Below is a wiki link as well. I know this information can be changed or may be inaccurate but it has some pretty good information
Thank you for stopping by and reading/looking at the pictures. I provided some links in the U.S.S Alabama for those of you who would like facts instead of experiences!
I hope you all have a great day!
