The article presents information on the ship Atlanta CL-104/IX-304. The name Atlanta has had a distinguished lineage in the U.S. Navy. The first Atlanta was a captured armored ram that retained her Confederate name on recommissioning with a Union crew on 26 September 1863. The second was the Navy's first modern "Steel Navy" warship, a protected cruiser commissioned in July 1886 that served until 1912. The name was next assigned to the first of a new class of "anti-aircraft" light cruisers, the CL-51, which entered service on 24 December 1941 and served brilliantly during the first year of the war in the Pacific, succumbing to massive battle damage on 13 November 1942.
