Battle of Antietam Creek S
In general, carriers of the Navybear names in commemoration of important battles in U. S. History or of olddistinguished
ships of the Navy itself. The ANTIETAM is of the first category and has and is gloryfying the victory of the Battle of
Antietam Creek, fought near Sharnsburg, Maryland on September 17, 1862, between the Federal Army of the U. 3. and
the Army of the Confederate States.
. P Y
mission successfully completed, Robert E. Lee was determined to continue his northward march. Confronting this advance
were the Federal Armies 'under General George McClellan. Lee's spirit was greater than his strength, for the ConfederateS

supplies limited and their numbers lessened, the Confederates met the well equipped and larger Union Army.
Both Armies faced each other on opposite banks of Antietam Creek, on September 17, 1862. What first started with an
artill h '
ery exc ange ended up in hand to hand combat. Charge and retreat - first one army had the advantage then the
other. Thus the battle was fought all day without any side achieving victory. Atnight fall both armies were again Posed
as at dawn on opposite banks of Antietam Creek. Between them now laid thousands of their comrades who paid the Srlpfeme
sacrifice. The red dyed Creek gave evidence of the bloodiest battle fought in History. The following day found' both

Although both sides claimed the victory, history has proved it to have been the ' '
turning point of the War.
The Ship History
Having had her keel laid on 15 March 1943 and
being commissioned on 28January 1945, ANTlETAM's
building time was a record for a ship of this size.
QThe record still stands., However, the time neces-
sary for fitting out, trials, shakedown, etc. saw her
"almost ready" to sail west when VJ Day was an-
Although frustrated in her attempt to take part in
the Pacific Theatre of World War II by the Japanese
surrender, the ANTIETAM operated in support of the
Japanese occupation. In 1949 she was mothballed at
Alameda, Califomia as part of the Pacific Reserve
To support the Korean conflict, the ANTIETAM
wasreactivated on January 17, 1951. Operations in
combat for almost four months saw her responsible
for 5, 728 sorties against the North Koreans, during
which time the bomb weight that left her magazines
totaled more than twice the weight of one of our des-
There followed a period in the inactive Pacific
Fleet again from April until August, 1952, at which
time she sailed for the East Coast. Shortly after her
arrival, the now famous ANTIETAM-SHANGRI-LA
personnel shift of complete crews was made. '
In September, 1952, the present canted-deck in-
stallation commenced and on January 5, 1953, the
ANTIETAM sailed from New York harbor to com-
mence experimental operations.
The experimental operations included: Phase I,
initial evaluation by a group of experienced pilots
from the Naval Air Test Center, Patuxent River,
Maryland, Phase II, air group training for Carrier Air
Group Eight, which consisted mostly of pilots com-
pletely inexperienced in the jet aircraft they were
flying, Phase III, post-shakedown repairs, and Phase
IV,.fullscale air operations with fleet units embarked.

The USS ANTIETAM arrived at the Guantanamo Naval Base
in Cuba for a training cruise. As the men soon found out, it
wasn't all work and no play.
AtGuantanamo they had golf and soft ball and a lot of dandy
games-but there was nothing like, as Rodgers and Hammerstein
phrased it, "dames."
Although isolated, Guantanamo Bay offered the men of the
ANTIETAM excellent facilities for recreation after extensive
work during qualification exercises. There wasn't a single mem-
ber of the crew who clidn't feel relaxed after a few hours at the
Captain makes his inspection..

Antie tam Battle Flag Presentation
The historical battle colors carried by troops of the North and South at the Civil War battle of Antietam
Creek, in 1862, were presented to the USS ANTIETAM during a flight deck ceremony on April ll. The
presentation took place while the USSANTIETAM was berthed at Bayonne, N. J.
The battle streamers were presented by the 165th Infantry Regiment of New York's "Fighting 69th Di-
vision" andthe l67th Infantry Regiment ofthe "Old 4th Alabama Division".
The colors are to remain in the custody of the ANTIETAM for the duration of active service.
lt was fitting that while the ANTIETAM was trying out new methods to protect our present and future
heritage, she received historic momentos from those who had successfully done so in the past.

It was inevitable that a distinguished innovation as the
Canted Deck should attract distinguished military leaders.
During every phase of the Evaluation Cruise, Admirals con-
cerned with Naval Aviation boarded the ANT IETAM to ob-
serve Canted Deck Gperations. It might be assumed that
their favorable reaction to the Canted Deck could be summed
up in one word, "Admirable".

The ANTIETAM was fortunate in having
spiritual guidance for all faiths: Cdr. Curtis,
was our Protestant Chaplain, Ltjg McGroa1-ty,
as our Catholic Chaplain, and, as acting
Rabbi, Lt. Jasper, junior Dental Officer.
Besides conducting divine services, the
Chaplains assisted anyone who sought gui-
dance in spiritual or personal affairs. The
Chaplains also were in charge of the Wel-
fare Department, taking care of the Crew's

Their cooking was often praised "just like Mom's".
The most discussed topic during the entire cruise,
next to the health of Marilyn Monroe, was chow,
Certainly Mother's meals are the best, but Mom
would be one harried housewife if she had to prepare
almost two thousand meals, three times a day, and
also see to it that her sons ate on time.
Gne of the most vivid impressions visitors carried
away with them, was the excellence of the food ser-
ved aboard the ANTIETAM, This compliment be-
longs solely to a small group of men that labored
long hours to please. The crew's praises were silent
but far more eloquent, empty trays.
No shortage of "spuds".

They made enough dough for all.

Naval Aviation was always concerned with
the problem of stopping planes on the flight
deck which failed to engage the arresting
wire. There always remained the constant
danger of such planes crashing into the parked
planes up forward. The old answer to this
problem was the use of Barriers. Now with
the Canted Deck, no barriers are required
since planes that fail to hook the arresting
wires can take off for another attempt to
However, a barrier is retained since their
might arise cases wherein a p1ane's landing
hook might be damaged in flight. Even a
canted deck is useless in such predicaments.
Consequently the continued need for a bar-
During this Canted Deck Cruise raising the
barrier was only a drill.

Every aircraft carrier keeps a tab on the number of landings
made. When the count reaches a new thousand mark, the
lucky pilot who made the landing is greeted into the select
"thousand club". For the occasion a cake,' in the shape of a
carrier, is baked. So it was only fitting that the cakes baked
for our ship's thousand landings had a cant.

During the cruise, the men of the ANTIETAM took part in many "firsts". Onevof which was the
largest night, color picture ever taken. The Sylvania Electric Company chose the ANTIETAM to
be the subject for this new technique in photography because she represented the newest tech-
niques in carrier operations.
The photograph depicted a typical night operation, with jets being catapulted and landing on
the canted deck. It was taken by a hovering Navy blimp containing the camera and the remote
control gear which launched a plane, set-off thousands of flashbulbs, and took the picture all
within approximately one-eighth of a second.
Timing, teamwork, and though in the placing of flashbulbs from the ship's trunk to the fwaterline
made the second photo attempt another ANTIETAM success story.

The purpose of our visit to England was to demonstrate the Canted Deck to the British and also to have them participate in flight operations, Thg Brit-

While on the cruise, our leaves, liberties, and laws were
promulgated by the Executive Department. The constant
grind of getting the work out could make young men old, but
not aboard the ANTIETAM. For what had been planned with
intelligence, was carried out in the same manner.

The highspirits of the Marine Corps were well rep-
resented aboard ship by the 4th Division. Never shy
or sad of eye, this Division played an integral part
in all ship's activities. As always they were every-
where: first in war, first in peace, and first in the
chow line. When the ANTIETAM wanted to show its
best foot forward during the numerous ceremonies
held, the marines were always present.
But all their jobs weren't ceremonious. The se-
curity of the ship, the disciplining of offenders, and
as orderlies for the Captain and Executive Officer,
were important duties well done.

We had rambling wrecks from Navy Techs, but they could-
notbe helluva Engineers. They were responsible for a physi-
cal life - the ship's. They saw to it that the pulsating arteries
carrying the energy of water, steam and electricity flowed
evenly so that every call for speed and power was answered.
Constant inspections insured a sound heart for a fast moving
lady whose job was to get planes in the air. The "Snipes" may
have lacked the glamor of the "airdales", but they commanded
respect for work well done.

Ancient mariners painted eyes on carved fig-

"cou1d see" her way. The Operations Depart-
ment saw the "Eyes" of the ANTIETAM. As ra-
dar, lookout and aerology information flowed in-
to the operation center, any black spots before
us were immediately removed.
Far more advanced than the Ancient Mariners
with our modern apparatus of radio and signal
communications we might say - the Operation
Department was also the "Ears " of the ANTIETAM.

ations Department rating "E" for Excellent.

Justin case - the ANTIETAM had a hospital aboardg
utilizing the most modern techniques and equipped
with the finest to provide adequate care for the
slightest of the most serious ailment. The assign-
ment of keeping the ANTlETAM's crew healthy was
a big oneg but the Sick Bay experts - from doctors
to hospitalmen, dentists to dentalmen, always had
the situation well in hand.
"And I came in for a rest. "
