Battleship Texas

 

Battleship Texas is the last remaining battleship that participated in both World War I and World War II. Over her service life, the Navy repeatedly outfitted the ship with cutting edge technology. Fate spared Battleship Texas as she fought in two wars. Now she is fighting for survival against age and rust.

Commissioned in 1914 as the most powerful weapon in the world, the Battleship TEXAS is credited with the introduction and innovation of advances in gunnery, aviation, and radar. She is the last surviving Dreadnought as well as the only battleship in existence today that fought in both World War I and World War II. The Battleship TEXAS fought German submarines during WWI, and helped protect the Allies throughout WWII during the North Africa invasion, at Omaha Beach on D-Day, and at the landings at Iwo Jima and Okinawa. After the end of World War II, the TEXAS spent three months transporting American troops home before being deactivated in 1946. The Battleship TEXAS was docked at the San Jacinto Battleground near Houston, Texas in 1948 and became the first permanent battleship museum. For more detailed history visit Texas Parks & Wildlife.

A National Historic Landmark, the Battleship TEXAS marks her first century facing new challenges. Time and nature have taken a major structural toll on the ship. She is in immediate need of critical repairs, as well as a long-term solution for her preservation. Please visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for more information on the Dry Berth Project
