The Missouri


USS Missouri (BB-63) ("Mighty Mo"

or "Big Mo") is a United States Navy

Iowa-class battleship, and was the

fourth ship of the U.S. Navy to be

named in honor of the U.S. state of

Missouri. It was the last battleship

built by the United States, and was

the site of the surrender of the

Empire of Japan which ended World

War II.


In 1998, the battleship was donated

to the USS Missouri Memorial

Association and became a museum

ship at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
