RARE c. 1901-1904 Lithograph USS Wisconsin BB-9 Battleship National Insurance Co
Posted on: October 19, 2019 /
I can’t find another example of this work. Please let me know if anyone else knows of another example that exists for sale. Size 11 1/2 x 8 1/4. It cannot be after 1906 because the Wisconsin entered the shipyard in 1906 for extensive overhaul which resulted in the removal of the masts pictured with the heavy cage masts common in the later battleships prior to WWI. By 1883 it had 55 employees and handled all advertising for Pabst Brewing. She was the third and final member of her class to be built. Her keel was laid down in February 1897 at the Union Iron Works in San Francisco, and she was launched in November 1898. Wisconsin served as the flagship of the Pacific Fleet from her commissioning to 1903; during this period, she made one long distance cruise to American Samoa in late 1901. In 1903, she was transferred to the Asiatic Fleet, where she served as the Northern Squadron flagship. The caged mast replaced the mast pictured in this lithograph. In July 1908, she joined the Great White Fleet for the second leg of its cruise around the world, which lasted until February 1909. She was also assigned to the Coast Battleship Patrol Squadron. She took part in a naval review in December 1918 after the war ended. She served briefly with the fleet in 1919, though by May 1920, she was decommissioned.
