Camden NJ Thank you! to Richard Knight for the Spotlight!

New Jersey and Missouri design were almost identical while Iowa and Wisconsin design were almost identical.
New Jersey and Missouri were the only ship in their class to be arm with an aircraft catpult.

New Jersey earn a total of 19 battle stars, 20 ribbons, and is the most decorated battleship in naval history.
New Jersey was also the flag ship of the feared Third Fleet command by Admiral Halsey during WWII.

Missouri earn a total of 11 battle stars and 17 ribbons.
The signing of the Japanese surrender took place in this ship.
The average person probably have heard of the battleship Missouri and not New Jersey.
