This blog is dedicated to all the men who served aboard the U.S.S. Seattle (AC-11), an armored cruiser that served in the United States Fleet from 1905 – 1946. The Seattle had a very interesting history during her long life, and this blog is my humble attempt to share some of that history with the world. My interest in the Seattle is very personal: my grandfather, Lynnly C. Adams, served on the Seattle from 1917 – 1919 during World War I. I never knew my grandfather as he died a full decade before I was born, but for the past 10 years I have collected photos and artifacts related to the U.S.S. Seattle as a way of honoring his memory. This has been a labor of love, and I hope you enjoy it.
