What was the only U.S. battleship to get underway during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941?
USS California, West Virginia, Nevada or Oklahoma?
The USS Nevada was the only battleship to start moving, though, it was hit by a torpedo and multiple bombs.
That's why the crew intentionally ran the USS Nevada aground to save the ship but its survival is only part of the reason why this was known as the unsinkable battleship. The USS Nevada was commissioned in 1916 and served in World War One.

After the Pearl Harbor attack more than two decades later, the ship was repaired and sailed to Europe where it took part in the D-Day landings of World War II. Then the Nevada returned to service in the Pacific.
After the war ended, the ship was used as a target in the U.S. military's nuclear weapon testing program. That's when the Nevada survived two atomic blasts in 1946. Still floating, the Nevada was finally sunk in 1948 after the Navy used it again for target practice and hit it with an aerial torpedo.
This is the ship's wreckage that was recently located about 65 miles southwest of Hawaii at a depth of more than 15,000-feet.
Ocean Infinity, the company that explored the Nevada says it hopes the ship's story honors those who served in the Navy, plays a role in education and exists as a symbol of perseverance and courage.
