Battleship Texas

Since it's in the same area as the San Jacinto Monument, we decided to tour the Battleship Texas, as well.  This ship fought in both World Wars, and at times had up to 1800 sailors on board!  The ship was like a miniature floating town, complete with a couple of stores, barber, dentist, and surgeon.  Oh, and a few jail cells, too!
