BB-19 Louisiana148kThe Louisiana (BB-19) taken 17 July 1913.
Between 6 July 1913 and 24 September 1915 Louisiana made three voyages from east coast ports to Mexican waters. On the first (6 July to 29 December 1913), she stood by to protect American lives and property and to help enforce both the Monroe DOctober rine and the arms embargo which had been established to discourage further revolutionary disturbances in Mexico. Her second voyage (14 April to 8 August 1914) came at a time when tension between Mexico and the United States was at its peak during the shelling and occupation of Vera Cruz. Louisiana sailed a third time for Mexican waters to protect American interests again from 17 August to 24 September 1915.

BB-19 Louisiana 630k TROUBLE IN TUXPAN OIL FIELDS DRIVES AMERICANS AND OTHERS OUT; MISS PAYNE ON THE LOUISIANA (BB-19)
Representatives of the English oil interests here have made frantic appeals to the United States government for protection against the rebels who now occupy the. city. Arthur C. Payne, the United States consular agent, sent his daughter, Miss Inez Payne, to the battleship Louisiana, now lying off this port. Many Americans have left, some going on the English ship Bloomfield. Others have taken the oil tank steamers. It is likely that one of the three English battleships ordered to the eastern coast of Mexico will be sent here, probably the Lancaster.
