Ships of the Spanish-American War--
Cruisers--USS Montgomery, USS Detroit and USS Marblehead

Montgomery (Cruiser # 9), Detroit (Cruiser # 10) and Marblehead (Cruiser # 11) were lightly-protected cruisers, the smallest of that type in the 1898 U.S. Navy. All three were completed in 1894. During the Spanish-American War, they were actively employed in the Cuban and Caribbean areas. Detroit was disposed of in 1910, but the other two continued in service through the First World War.

This page features views of these three cruisers.
