August 20, 1907: USS Vermont BB-20, date and location unknown. Nicknamed the "Great White Fleet" because of the white and spar color of their paint schemes, the 16 pre-dreadnought battleships, including the Vermont, sailed from Hampton Roads on 16 December, standing out to sea under the gaze of President Theodore Roosevelt who had dispatched the ships, around the globe as a dramatic gesture toward Japan, a growing power on the world stage.
Largely because Montpelier acts as a downtown for many of the smaller surrounding communities, this, the nation’s smallest capital city, boasts incredible cultural opportunities. Description from heneyrealtors.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
