ARTifacts: Debris from the USS Shenandoah
Clip: Season 3 Episode 11 | 2m 54s
After World War I, the U.S. Navy decided that rigid airships would be a useful defense tool to scout enemy positions. The USS Shenandoah was the first of these zeppelins to be completed; it was inflated with helium and in the mid-1920s embarked on a goodwill tour across the United States.
