The "maximum battleships," also known as the "Tillman Battleships" were a series of World War I-era design studies for extremely large battleships, prepared in late 1916 and early 1917 to the order of Senator "Pitchfork" Benjamin Tillman.
Senator Tillman had grown impatient with the Navy's requests for larger battleships every year as well as the Navy's habit of building battleships significantly larger than Congress authorized.

He supported Governor Tillman’s proposal for the establishment of a dispensary system as the most feasible plan for limiting the sale of alcoholic beverages; in fact, in 1892 Evans campaigned for and won the nomination to the Senate partially on the basis of his position regarding the dispensary system.
Several issues marked his term in office: a continuance of the policies of Tillman, the maintenance of the dispensary system, the establishment of the South Carolina Constitutional Convention of 1895, and the removal of the two-mill school tax.
In later years, Tillman offered him advice and urged him (after JGE unsuccessfully campaigned for Senatorial election four times) to assume less of a prominent position in South Carolina politics, that his presence could still be felt in other ways and in other areas.
