USS Maine (BB-10)
The lead of a three-ship class, USS Maine (BB-10) was laid down in February, 1899, and commissioned 29 December, 1902. Maine operated in the Atlantic for the bulk of her career, but was part of the Great White Fleet's world tour, until it headed across the Pacific. Due to her high coal consumption, Maine paired off with USS Alabama for a separate tour, and returned to the Atlantic ahead of the remainder of the fleet. Maine decommissioned in August, 1909, but recommissioned in June, 1911. During World War I, Maine served as a training ship, and operated with the Atlantic Fleet until May, 1920, when she decommissioned for the final time. She was sold for scrap in January, 1922, but waited around for almost two years before she was demilitarized in December, 1923.
