The fleet sailed past Fort Point Lighthouse and its twin keeper duplexes on the way into the San Francisco Bay. The Los Angeles Herald reported, “As the Connecticut passed Fort Point, the flagship set signals for more speed, and the bows of the warships were soon throwing up a sea of white foam as they plowed through the water. It was 3:30 when the Kentucky, the last ship in line, passed the lighthouse at the entrance to the Golden Gate, and half an hour later the fleet was lost to view in a dense cloud of black smoke belching forth from the forest of funnels and the thick weather which was rolling in from the sea.” (Library of Congress)
