Weekend Steam: Visit The Engine Room Of A Liberty Ship

This is the Liberty Ship SS Jeremiah O'Brien, in operation.  How many ships like this sailed the Atlantic during the War?* How many men, how many tons of war materiel crossed the ocean in ships like this one?  Click the YouTube logo on the video to read the description of the boat and the trip it is making.
