U.S.S. Salem PG-02 1895 by planetrix15 U.S.S. Salem PG-02 1895 by planetrix15
An early Steam/Sail hybrid coastal patrol ship. 
This Salem was unique in that it was the first ship to mount its main battery in rotating turrets, one centerline with twin barrels and two side by side with single barrels. It was also the first ship to feature a centered, enclosed superstructure and bridge a feature which wouldn't reappear until just prior to WWII.
