The Battleship Texas was early on considered something of an ugly duckling in the navy, often characterized as a clumsy "hoodoo" or jinxed ship. Perhaps being seen as the least valuable battleship in the navy and therefore the most expendable, the Texas found herself in the enviable position of seeing more action than any other capital vessel in the US Fleet.

Author Alan Sumrall will tell the story of the hero of this Spanish-American War.
