The Massachusetts, a passenger steamer, was built in Philadelphia in 1907. She was 346'7" long with a 52'2" beam and 14'7" draft. She was sold to the U.S. Navy in 1917. She was modified over time and re-named the USS Oglala. She was sunk and raised in Pearl Harbor in WWII and continued to serve the Nation until she was decommisioned and scrapped in 1965.
