The USS Michigan was laid down in December 1906;  the hull was launched May 26, 1908; but the USS Michigan was not commissioned for active duty until January 4, 1910.

The Michigan and its sister ship South Carolina were both assigned to the Atlantic Fleet and were the US Navy’s first class of dreadnoughts.
