Description

The name U.S.S. Michigan has been shared by 3 vessels in the United States Navy. The first U.S.S. Michigan was the Navy's first iron-hulled warship (1843-1949). It was renamed the U.S.S. Wolverine in 1905 and decommissioned in 1912; the U.S.S. Michigan (Battleship BB-27) along with her sister ship U.S.S. South Carolina was the first “all-big-gun battleships designed and built for the U.S. Navy; the third and current U.S.S. Michigan SSBN 727 is a Trident-class missile submarine launched in 1980. This collection focuses on the U.S.S. Michigan (Battleship BB-27), but includes articles, images, and memorabilia of all three vessels utilizing the name of U.S.S. Michigan.
