USS Detroit (Cruiser # 10, C-10), 1893-1911

USS Detroit, a 2094-ton cruiser of the Montgomery class, was built at Baltimore, Maryland, and commissioned in July 1893. She spent her early years in South Atlantic and Asiatic waters. During the Spanish-American War, and for several years thereafter, Detroit mainly operated in the Caribbean area. In 1903-04, she also cruised off South America and off the U.S. east coast. Decommissioned in August 1905, she was sold in 1911.
