  1. Thank you so much for showing the clip of Edward Amet's Battle of Santiago Bay, a film I have read about but never knew still existed until today! And how fantastic to see Amet's visual effects miniature of USS Olympia, truly an historic model. All in all, a thoroughly excellent film about a fascinating museum.
