USS New Jersey
USS New Jersey (BB-16) was a Virginia-class battleship of the United States Navy. She was one of the many ships that sailed around the world in 1907–09 as part of the Great White Fleet, a voyage intended to demonstrate growing American military power and blue-water navy capability. New Jersey was used mostly as a training vessel and saw almost no combat.Photo: United States Navy
