Nebraska (battleship)
A shipbuilding achievement in which the people of the Pacific Northwest took great pride was the launching from the Moran Bros. yard in Seattle of the United States Navy battleship Nebraska on October 7, 1904. Following the construction of the naval torpedo boat -Ro a in 1897, Robert Moran had become convinced that his plant was capable of building a full sized battleship. In 1900 the company submitted a bid for the construction of the Nebraska which was lower than any bid from other builders, although higher than the Navy's estimates, leaving out of consideration the differential that should have been allowed on account of the cost of moving her from an Atlantic Coast yard to the Pacific, where she was to be put in commission. John M. Moran of Seattle, son of Robert Moran, has provided the following account of the subsequent events which secured the building contract for the Puget Sound yard: Congress appropriated a lump sum for the Navy Department to use to build four battleships of the same class.
