Homecoming of the "Great White Fleet",
Hampton Roads, Virginia, 22 February 1909
Local excursion steamer General Lee (left center) steaming past a line of Atlantic Fleet ships, during ceremonies welcoming the "Great White Fleet" home at the end of its World cruise.
The ship beyond and to the right of General Lee is either USS Mississippi (Battleship # 23) or USS Idaho (Battleship # 24), neither of which participated in the cruise around the World. Note that she wears the newly-introduced grey paint, and has been fitted with a "cage" mainmast.
