DYNAMITE CRUISER!

AN ERUPTION SUBDUED
---THE STRANGE SAGA OF THE---
                                  VESUVIUS

The night had been hot; another steamy night in the tropics.  Stealthily, the small yacht-like vessel crept toward the approaches of Santiago Harbor.  On the bridge of the vessel, silence reigned.  The vessel slinked past the other ships that was blockading the town's harbor.  Yep it was June 15, 1898 the U.S. forces had landed in Cuba.

This is about an unusual vessel....that had some unusual guns....which is extremely interesting....so if you'd care to give this one a read....just click on the below link.
