Chatot

 

A tribe of Indians of southeastern United States.

 

Chatot (AT-167), formerly Buttercup, was fitted out at Mare Island Navy Yard for service as a coastal tug. She was placed in service on 3 November 1943 and reclassified ATA-167 on 15 May 1944. She operated in the 12th Naval District until 9 February 1945 when she was placed out of service and delivered to the War Shipping Administration. Stricken from the Navy Register on 10 March 1945, she was thereafter transferred to the U.S.S.R.
