USS Alabama

by Alissa

We visited the USS Alabama battleship and the USS Drum submarine in Mobile, Alabama.  We went on a self-guided tour through the ship.  I was impressed with the size of the ship, its maze of rooms and corridors, and the effort it would have taken to keep everything running in wartime.  Many rooms are set up as they would have looked during the 1940s.  We all enjoyed our visit.  I suggest you wear good walking shoes and be prepared to get exercise going up and down narrow staircases.  The day happened to be our wedding anniversary.
