USS New Hampshire (BB-70)

Building of a Montana-class battleship to be named USS New Hampshire (BB-70) in honor of the ninth state was authorized 19 July 1940, and assigned to the New York Navy Yard; but, before her keel was laid, construction was canceled 21 July 1943. New Hampshire would have been the third ship to bear that name had she been commissioned.

Other ships of the United States Navy have borne the name New Hampshire; see that index page.
