USS Alabama BB-60 on shakedown in the Atlantic, January 1943.
I would like to add that US battleships amid the snow and clear blue skies of the North Atlantic in winter is possibly one of the most powerful images ever.

When she was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register and due to scrapped, the state of Alabama raised around $800,000 was raised for her transfer and towing to Mobile, Alabama. An eighth of the cost was raised came from children in the state, with the rest coming primarily from corporate donations.
