— Liberty Ship 'SS Jeremiah O'Brien' - Alive and Steaming —Visit America's answer to Hitler's U-Boats - one of the last 2,710 identical armed Merchant Ships built to carry "beans, bullets and black oil" to our fighting men around the world. The goal was to build them faster than the enemy could sink them. Their simple design originated in Britain, using identical parts, mass produced in factories across America. Liberty Ship construction set all time records: only 60 days from laying to launch.
