USS Montgomery (Cruiser # 9, C-9), 1894-1919, later renamed Anniston

USS Montgomery, a 2094-ton cruiser, was built at Baltimore, Maryland. Commissioned in June 1894, she operated along the U.S. east coast and in the Caribbean until 1899. During the Spanish-America War, she was active in the blockade of Cuba.

Montgomery was stationed in the South Atlantic in 1899-1900. She thereafter stayed in the vicinity of the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, serving as a cruiser, torpedo experimental ship and Naval Militia training ship. Renamed USS Anniston in March 1918, she was part of the American Patrol Detachment during the First World War. Decommissioned in May 1918, the old cruiser was sold in November 1919.
