BATTLESHIP OREGON (BB-3), ONCE NAVY'S IDOL, NOW SENT TO THE REAR AS TRAINING SHIP FOR NAVY MILITIA
When she made her 50,000-mile trip around the Horn at the time of the Spanish war she was supposed to be the greatest fighting machine afloat, but alongside a modern, dreadnought she would look like pigmy. She displaces 10,288 tons against the Arizona's (BB-39) 31,400.
