"From budding youth to well developed manhood. Every age of physical strength and hope was to be found in the ship's company of the Maine. From spinning yarns to feats of strength, the Maine's crew was thoroughly representative of the United States Navy, and all the crews of other ships that had come in contact with them, can have no better talisman when fighting than a recollection of the bright faces on the battleship." - Johnston
