Re: New Challenge ?
Anyone know offhand if there was a state in the WWI-WWII period which ONLY had a namesake BB? I *think* I can think of one that might fit that bill...
Well, my home state, Alabama, would not be in the running, but here are the ships I can think of offhand (leaving out DDs named for Alabamians and limiting myself to WWII): BB Alabama; CA Tuscaloosa; CLs Birmingham and Mobile, AP Talladega; Next door, in Florida I can think of CA Pensacola, as well as CLs Miami and Tallahassee; From Mississippi the BB, as well as cruiser Biloxi; and finally Tennessee, the BB, and CLs Memphis and Nashville. Just stuff from off the top of my head.
Based on this criteria would be interesting to see which State had the largest navy. Ships named after people would have to be assigned to person's birth location I guess.... Anyone up for the challenge...?
