About this Project

This project was completed for the History and New Media course at George Mason University. My research into the Steel Navy is ongoing, and this site represents merely a snapshot of my findings. The website was developed using a customization of the Omeka tool, developed by George Mason University's Center for History and New Media. Pages have been validated for HTML and CSS compliance.
