USS Yosemite (1898-1900)

USS Yosemite, a 6179-ton auxiliary cruiser, was built at Newport News, Virginia, in 1892 for commercial employment. Acquired by the Navy in April 1898, she operated in the West Indies area during the Spanish-American War. After that conflict, she served briefly in the Atlantic and then was sent to Guam for use as station ship and, occasionally, as a transport. On 13 November 1900 she was badly damaged by a typhoon. After her crew was rescued, Yosemite was scuttled offshore.

This page features 1898 views of USS Yosemite.
