Description

USS Oregon BB-3 Pre-dreadnought Indiana-class Battleship, was built by Union Iron Works of San Francisco, California in 1890 for the United States Navy. She was launched in 1893 and delivered to the Navy on 26 June 1896.  Captain H.L. Howison is the first captain of USS Oregon BB-3. Later she was commanded by Captains Albert S. Barker and Alexander H. McCormick. Captain Charles E. Clark was in command in March 1898 throughout the Spanish–American War.

After the war Oregon was refitted and sent back to the Pacific. She served for a year in the  Philippine–American War and then spent a year in China at Wusong during the Boxer Rebellion before returning to the United States for an overhaul. In March 1903 Oregon returned to Asiatic waters and stayed there for three years, decommissioning in April 1906. Oregon was recommissioned in August 1911, but saw little activity and was officially placed on reserve status in 1914. After the United States joined World War I in 1917 Oregon acted as one of the escorts for transport ships during the Siberian Intervention. In October 1919, she was decommissioned for the final time. As a result of the Washington Naval Treaty, Oregon was declared “incapable of further warlike service” in January 1924. In June 1925 she was loaned to the State of Oregon, who used her as a floating monument and museum in Portland.
