DVD +R 25 minutes No ISBN Price: $19.95
Over 2,700 Liberty ships were constructed in World War II in shipyards across the country. They were the saviors of the Allied nations for without these transport ships it is doubtful we could have supplied the Allied forces. The Liberty ships were built in a very short time span. The record was the Robert E. Perry which was built in 4 days, 15.5 hours. Our story is about the John Morgan who was carrying tanks, ammo, jeeps and motorcycles. While waiting to join a convoy off the coast of Virginia, she rammed the tanker Montana and sank in 100 feet of water.
