USS Connecticut (Battleship # 18) Post card providing the ship's itinerary during the Great White Fleet World cruise. This card was published prior to the completion of the cruise, as it is postmarked Mason, Michigan in January 1909 (exact date is unclear) and some dates apparently reflect the Fleet's original schedule. These notably include the dates of arrival at the Suez Canal (3 January 1909, not 5 January) and Hampton Roads (22 February 1909, not 21 January). Donation of Mrs. Ruth Mayfield, 1973.
