The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum opened Taking the Seas: The Rise of the American Aircraft Carrier on July 14, 2014, an exhibit that explores the development of the aircraft carrier and the role it plays in projecting our nation’s influence abroad.  From the first efforts at the close of the First World War, to the central role the carrier played in winning World War II, to the newest super-carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, the exhibit offers key artifacts, documents, and video of the rise of the American carrier.
