USS Texas (BB-35) has had an illustrious career from its commissioning in March 1914 to her position in the 21st century.  She served during World War I in the North Sea and escorted war convoys across the Atlantic during World War II.  Texas now serves as a museum and memorial ship at the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. Beyond her military service, she has had a strong connection with the expanding role of the country in the early 20th century and been tied to technological advancements that helped shape the modern era. In addition, Texas remains a vital player as a site of public memory and national identity as America moves into the 21st century and further away from one of the most significant periods in human history.
