USS Tennessee BB-43 during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Article, photos, and information.

The USS Tennessee was berthed in Battleship Row on the south side of Ford Island, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. She was in a nested pair with the USS West Virginia and since she was moored inboard, she was protected from the torpedo attack. To her stern was the USS Arizona, and the USS Maryland was just ahead of her, berthed inside to the USS Oklahoma. According to the action report, at about 7:55 AM, Japanese planes were seen dropping bombs on Ford Island.
