USS Ericsson (Torpedo Boat # 2, TB-2), 1897-1912

USS Ericsson, a 120-ton torpedo boat, was built in Dubuque, Iowa, and commissioned in February 1897. She spent her entire service career in the Atlantic area, operating off Cuba during the Spanish-American War. On 3 July 1898, she was very active in the Battle of Santiago, rescuing many crewmen of the defeated Spanish cruisers. Ericsson decommissioned in April 1912, and later was expended as a target.
