Additional Details:
Directly in front of Bancroft Hall at the end of Stribling Walk is Tecumsch - God of the 2.5. This aristocratic old chief was once the figurehead of the U. S. S. Delaware, but was given an honorable discharge to furnish out his service as guardian angel of the wooden men at the Naval Academy. The Class of '91 came to the rescue and had a bronze replica made. The bronze plate with the Naval Academy seal at the foot of the figure was made from the metal that was to have composed the torpedo tubes of the new "Washington".
