BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The last surviving ship from the attack on Pearl Harbor will no longer be known by its original name.
The former Coast Guard cutter Roger B. Taney sits in the Inner Harbor and now serves as a museum.
Taney served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
In 1857, he delivered the majority opinion in Dred Scott v. Sanford which said free Black people and slaves were not American citizens and could not become citizens.
The ship will now be referred to by its hull identification number.
