And don't forget Patriot's Point, across the river from Chaleston SC (which has a bit history all its own). There is CV10, the Midway Class 'Yorktown'; and USS Laffey, DD724, a Sumner Class DD.
I often wondered why even Adm. Halsey couldn't save the Big 'E'. I suppose she was so beat up it wasn't worth the investment.
When I was a kid ('70s) we'd always vacation in Hilton Head, and one of the highlights was going up to Patriots Point to tour the Yorktown. It was a blast... one thing I noticed is that "now", all the compartments, knobs, valves, etc. are blocked off by that pexiglass... but back then it was free reign you could turn them all, touch stuff, etc. etc.
On one tour of the YorkTown my older brother and I went commando-ing to "find those Jap bastards that have boarded our ship" and we went through some "doors" into an area that hadn't been touched by the touch up crew. It was the bow of the boat and all rusty... there were a TON of papers lying around, and thus our anti-boarding mission turned into anb intelligence gathering mission. To this day, I have no idea what those papers lying around were, or what they meant, but they were old, I knew that.
And the tour was always topped off by a viewing of "The Fighting Lady".
