Best Answer

The 'Great White Fleet' was a large fleet consisting of 16 new battleships of the Atlantic Fleet, was sent around the world by US President Theodore Roosevelt. Launched on 16 December 1907, it travelled down the eastern coast of America, around the southern cape and back up the western coast, as the Panama Canal had not yet been completed. After this, it continued on to various ports around the world. The fleet reached its final destination on 22 February 1909.

The purpose of the fleet seemed to be as a show of American sea (naval) power, and showed to the world that the US had a Blue Water Navy, even though some of the ships were technically obsolete and no longer fit for battle.
