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

 

USS Massachusetts (Battleship # 2) was built between 1891 and 1896. Beginning in May 1898, she operated off Cuba. On 3 July 1898 she was coaling at Guantanamo and so missed taking part in that day's naval battle off Santiago. Massachusetts remained in service through World War I, and was sunk as a target off Florida in 1920.
