USS President Lincoln (1917-1918)
"All that was left of the ship": Life rafts and boats adrift in the Bay of Biscay about two weeks after the ship was sunk. President Lincoln was torpedoed by the German submarine U-90 on 31 May 1918.
Note: A hand-written inscription on an original print of this image in the Naval Historical Foundation's USS President Lincoln collection identifies it as having been taken from USS Roe (Destroyer # 24) on 1 June 1918, the day after President Lincoln was sunk.
