Battleship 1916 ... March 20, 1916
The preliminary design for battleships to be funded in Fiscal Year 1916, sent by the Bureau of Construction & Repair on 28 March 1916 to the Navy Department as the baseline for comparison with six alternative new designs (see Photo #s S-584-095 through S-584-100) under consideration for construction in the forthcoming Fiscal Year 1917.
Tennessee and California (Battleships No.43 and 44, respectively) were built with Fiscal Year 1916 funding to the design shown here.
Note: The original document was a blueprint (white on black).
The original plan is in the 1911-1925 "Spring Styles Book".
