"[Cramp's] enhanced its reputation as the premier maker of modern ships in the naval program of 1890 with the construction of the battleships USS Indiana and USS Massachusetts, armored cruiser USS New York, and protected cruiser USS Columbia. Cramp-built vessels comprised three of the five capital ships that defeated the Spanish fleet in 1898 at Santiago de Cuba, an event that heralded America's emergence as a great power." (GlobalSecurity) The present work illustrates and describes the company's most important ships from the clipper ship Morning Light to the new American transatlantic passenger liners Saint Louis and Saint Paul, at the time the two most important commercial ships ever built in the Western Hemisphere.
