Have you ever gotten curious about something, and just couldn't let go until you found the answer? Well, I got curious about battleships. My question was, "Are there any states which have not had a battleship named after them?" Here are the results of my search.
|NAME||COMMISSIONED||EITHER NEVER BUILT OR NEVER COMPLETED|
|Maine||No Hull #; BB-10||BB-69|
|New Jersey||BB-16; BB-62|
|Texas||No Hull #; BB-35|
Alaska and Hawaii have never had a battleship named after them. Battleships had essentially become obsolete by the time either became a state. Montana has never had a battleship named after it that was completed and commissioned.
The first two battleships (Texas and Maine, built in that order) did not have hull numbers (BB designations).
Kearsarge is an anomaly as it is the only battleship not named after a state.
