Your item “On ‘Wisconsin’: A Battleship Comes Home” in “History Now” (April) tells us that “only three other Iowa -class battleships survive.” This statement, though correct, also misleads in that only three other Iowas were ever completed. All survive, as do several memorialized ships from earlier classes (among them USS Alabama, Massachusetts, North Carolina ).
