Visited the Indiana Military museum today in Vincennes, Indiana and discovered that the submarine memorial is located near the main entrance.

There is a mark 14 torpedo both at the memorial and in the museum along with a 16 inch shell.

 

Also visited the USS Vincennes monument Before leaving town.

Interesting stuff! Nice post!

 

Oddly enough though, that photo that's labelled as the Quincy is actually the Vincennes I think. Quincy and Vincennes were both New Orleans-class cruisers, sunk at the battle of Savo Island in 1942. "Quincy" was given to a new Baltimore-class cruiser, and "Vincennes" was given to a Cleveland class. If you look at that photo, it's clearly not a New Orleans, and there's only one crane for floatplanes, which is a characteristic of Clevelands (Baltimores had two).

 

All nitpicking aside, looks like a nice exhibit. I'll have to add it to my bucket list.

The museum has some very nice exhibits.
