95 Ships Launched on 4 July 1918


Translation of caption on this folded card: A nightmare of Von Turpitz translates into reality: in one day alone, 4 July, 1918, ninety five naval ships were launched in the United States. 

The New York Times on 6 July 1918 stated that Fleet Corporation announced that 95 ships were launched on 4 July 1918. These included 14 Wickes class destroyers.
