USS Alabama, a 11,565-ton Illinois class battleship, was built at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was commissioned in October 1900. During the next seven years, she primarily operated along the U.S. East Coast and in the Caribbean area, taking part in the exercises and gunnery practice that were the main tasks of battleships in peacetime. In mid-1904 Alabama, accompanied by three other battleships and three cruisers, steamed across the Atlantic for a visit to Portugal, followed by a tour of duty in the Mediterranean Sea.
