The Liberty Ship was a cargo ship made to a standard for rapid construction during WW2. The US made 2751 such ships during the war, up to 4 a day. They were built on a design from 1879 scaled up for modern use & carried 10,000 tons, the workhorse of the Navy. After the war, they were sold off, primarily to Greece.
