This is an interesting (if dated) little article on the difference that a century makes in naval architecture. In spite of the profound changes that have occured, I am nonetheless inclined to think that USS Mississippi shares much more in common with the DD(X) than it did with the ships-of-the-line of the Napoleonic War. However advanced the DD(X) may be, it’s basic form and structure remain similar to to the pattern established by HMS Warrior in the 1860s.
