Pictures: The Great White Fleet leaves Hampton Roads with a presidential salute

The Great White Fleet left Hampton Roads for its historic round-the-world voyage on Dec. 16, 1907 after spending nearly two weeks anchored in two long lines just a stone's throw from the steamboat wharf at Old Point Comfort. President Theodore Roosevelt steamed down from Washington, D.C. to take in the epic sight of the 16 white-painted battleships, which greeted the excited Commander-in-Chief with a thunderous 21-gun salute before passing in review as they started their 43,000 nautical mile journey.
