The U.S. Navy heavy cruiser USS Minneapolis (CA-36) at Tulagi with torpedo damage received in the Battle of Tassafaronga, the night before. The photograph was taken on 1 December 1942, as work began to cut away the wreckage of her bow.

USS Independence was used as a target vessel in the Bikini Atoll Atomic Bomb Testing in 1946, called Operation Crossroads.
