July 13, 1916

THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Georgia, July 13, 1916

* Giant German U-Boat Deutschland
* Baltimore Maryland landing
* Avoids British blockade


This 14 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page:

* U-BOAT CONVOYED BY NEUTRAL SHIP TO UNITED STATES
* Board Of Neutrality To Pass On Deutchland

and more.

Other news of the day throughout. Some browning around the margins with little margin wear, otherwise good.

wikipedia notes: Deutschland was a blockade-breaking German merchant submarine used during World War I. It was developed with private funds and operated by the North German Lloyd Line. It was one of the first UA-class boats built but was unarmed, with a wide beam to provide space for cargo. The capacity was 700 tons (much of it outside the pressure hull), relatively small compared to surface ships. Deutschland was used for high-value transatlantic commerce, submerging to avoid British patrols.
