Battleship Row

Battleship Row was the grouping of eight battleships in port at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese launched the Attack on Pearl Harbor. These ships bore the brunt of the Japanese assault. They were moored next to Ford Island when the attack commenced. The ships were:

Four of the ships were sunk; of the other four, only Nevada had serious damage. Following the attack, operations immediately commenced to refloat and repair them. By the end of the war, six of them would see service again (all except the Arizona and Oklahoma). No battleship that was in the attack on Pearl Harbor is afloat today. The last ship to be either sunk or scrapped was the USS California (BB-44) in 1959.
