SS United States America’s flagship
For over one hundred years passenger liners had been racing across the Atlantic in cutthroat competition for the Blue Riband, the prize for the best crossing time. The winners were objects of national pride for they represented the best in a country’s technology, culture, and way of life. For all its industrial might Americans had never been able to field a winner. That was about to change when the new superliner SS United States sailed into New York Harbor.
