NH 1021 Kaiser Wilhelm II

Kaiser Wilhelm II
Title: Kaiser Wilhelm II
Caption: Photograph presented by the kaiser to USS LOUISIANA (BB-19) at Kiel in June 1911. Second division of the US Atlantic fleet was there during yachting week. Since it was the emperor's ambition to make the Kiel yachting week a worthy rival of the English cowes week, he was present on board the imperial yacht HOHENZOLLERN and nearly all the German high seas fleet was also present. Twice he visited the LOUISIANA, once to inspect the ship, and once as a luncheon guest of Rear Admiral Charles J. Badger, who was commander of the second division, and LOUISIANA was flagship with Captain Winterhalter as commander.
