Epworth beach August 10, 1909 - Steve Hunt
1967.11.jpg (121418 bytes)

With some time to look into this, I find that the vessels were the Don Juan de Austria, Yantic, Nashville, Essex, Dorothea, and Gopher, all on a naval reserve training trip with 1600 reservists among the six vessels. The fleet anchored off Epworth at 6 AM, Monday, 16 August 1909 (not 11 August 1909 as the photo caption indicates) and remained there for nine hours while signal and gunnery drills were performed. The army was conducting massive reserve training at the same time at Lincoln Fields (now the Lincoln Hills Golf Course, I believe) just north of Epworth, and its commanders, as well as Michigan governor Fred Warner, were guests aboard the Don Juan de Austria.
