The International Naval Rendezvous at Hampton Roads, Virginia, 1893
The 1893 Naval Rendezvous was a gathering of various nations' ships at Hampton Roads. The venue was intended to strengthen the U.S. claim to be a naval power.
On the large broadsheet colored lithograph made for this occasion we see between the other ships Columbus' fleet next to a proposed statue of Columbus in the sea. This statue is never realised.
