USS Oglala capsized

Photo of USS Oglala capsized

View from Pier 1010, looking toward the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard's drydocks, with USS Shaw (DD-373) -- in floating drydock YFD-2 -- and USS Nevada (BB-36) burning at right, December 7th 1941.

In the foreground is the capsized USS Oglala minelayer (CM-4). She had been damaged by a torpedo that had actually hit the light cruiser USS Helena (CL-50), visible on the left. Helena was towed forward, while Oglala sank.

Beyond Helena is Drydock Number One, with USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) and the burning destroyers Cassin (DD-372) and Downes (DD-375).
