Maintaining Historic Ships With Battleship USS New Jersey Curator Ryan Szimanski
USS Missouri’s Upgrades for Korea & The Gulf War by her Curator

The Iowa Class Battleships were the last battleships to be built and launched by the United States Navy. Battleships have been considered instrumental for generations of warfare participants, including present-day Russia’s Navy which still has gigantic Battleships that roam the seas today. However, the United States wants to focus on Aircraft Carriers as the focul point of the destructive force of the Navy.

The idea being that airpower is everything which is true in itself, however battleships have mutually exclusive values to carriers, they still offer the ability for bombardment of shore positions and providing a security presence when dealing with a hostile territory.

Whether or not battleships are brought back into the active United States Navy, the 4 Iowa Class Battleship Museums represent an amazing learning experience and living history of America.

These 4 Battleships are located in the southern most tip of New Jersey, across the river from Philadelphia, for the USS New Jersey. The USS Iowa is located in Los Angeles due to the American state of Iowa being landlocked. The Battleship USS Missouri, which is famous for being the location the Japanese signed their surrender, is located by the Pearl Harbor Memorial in Hawaii, since the American state of Missouri is also landlocked. Lastly the state of Wisconsin which is connected to the great lakes and could have received the USS Wisconsin, did not as she was taken to Norfolk, Virginia.
