They might have been machines of war, but they have this air of beauty that you can only get by having something so large and intimidating. It really is a sight to behold, standing on the bridge looking out into Charleston against the sunrise.
True. But because they are machjnes of war, we must preservere them, so that future generations will never forget the horrific time that these ships had to be used. And btw I totally agree with you, they look very imposing.
