Spanish American War and "New Navy" links

To get the ball rolling and provide some content for discussion while we are preparing our first blogs, here are some excellent websites for those interested in the warships and history of the New Navy period.  These sites provide some overlap into the "Old Navy" as well as into the Dreadnaught/Super Dreadnaught era, for a bit of context.

Spanish American War Centennial Website
Naval History and Heritage Command - Their spotlight on the Spanish American War is here.
Library of Congress
New York Public Library - The Brooklyn Navy Yard and associated personnel  played critical roles.
Vidamaritima - Spanish language
1898 Punto de Encuentro - Spanish language
Distant Guns - The only pre-Dreadnaught period naval simulation software of which I am aware.
