Potemkin Village Battleship Illinois

As part of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, a replica of a modern...cutting edge, even, for its day...US Navy coastal defense battleship was constructed in Lake Michigan.

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. Ready for a New Year’s Brunch? I actually don’t have any items about New Years in the New Year’s Brunch. I just like saying New Year’s Brunch.
