Ships of the Spanish-American War--
Battleships--USS Indiana

USS Indiana (Battleship # 1) was built between 1891 and 1895. During the Spanish-American War, she was active in operations off Cuba, and took part in the naval battle off Santiago on 3 July 1898. Indiana's service continued through World War I. In 1920, she was sunk as a target during tests of the effectiveness of aerial bombs.

This page features views of the Indiana, including photographs taken on board the ship.
