Title How the James River Pioneered Shipbuilding
Issue Volume 37 Number 02, (CWJ, Spring 2015)
Description The Virginia Hampton Roads area has been the center of English-American shipbuilding since the early 17th century and the James River shipyards helped America navigate and survive the hazards of centuries of wars. Newport News Shipbuilding, founded 130 years ago, continues to build U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and submarines and the Newport News Shipyard has become the state's largest employer.
