USS Bonhomme Richard

Commissioning visit to Pensacola August 8 thru 17, 1998

Photo of USS Bonhomme Richard as it leaves Pensacola. It will make a turn to port and exit Pensacola Sound into the Gulf of Mexico via the ship channel. Fort Pickens point is in the background and is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Fort Pickens was the only civil war fort in the South that did not fall into the Union hands during the war, (Rats) and can be toured.
