Men on Board Ships of the Atlantic Fleet
Bound for the Pacific

December 16, 1907

Search the names of over 14,000 sailors who sailed with the Great White Fleet - a peacetime goodwill tour of the U. S. Battle Fleet sent by President Teddy Roosevelt that sailed around the world beginning in Hampton Roads, Virginia on December 16, 1907 and ending February 22, 1909.

The fleet consisted of sixteen new battleships painted white, with gilded scrollwork on their bows, six destroyers, and several auxiliary ships. This was likely the last large fleet to sail around the Horn before the completion of the Panama Canal in 1914.
