FORT SNELLING is named after " Old Fort Snelling " , a national monu- ment in Saint Paul, Minnesota, which when originally constructed in 1819 was the most north-western outpost of the united states. it was located at the junction of the miss- ISSIPPI and Minnesota rivers. Built as a part of a national plan for frontier defense, it was a tiny island of civilization in the wilderness. here the indian agency, the fur traders, a few white settlers, the soldier, and the indian neighbors made the old fort a hub of Northwest activity. Many distinguished army officers, including Zachary Taylor and Jefferson Davis, served the fort. Today the Round Tower and Blockhouse survive. They are the oldest buildings in minnesota and are under the care of the minnesota historical Society. The U.S.S. FORT SNELLING was built by the ingalls Shipbuilding Company in Pesca- goula, Mississippi. Mrs. Robert F. Briscoe, wife of Vice Admiral Briscoe, deputy Chief of Naval Operations and Readiness, was the sponsor at her launching on 16 July 1954. She was placed in commission 24 january 1955. Since commissioning, the FORT SNELLING has undergone training at Guantanamo Bay, CUBA, FOURT1MES, HAS PARTICIPATED IN MANYAMPHIBIOUS EXERCISES IN THE CARIBBEAN AREA , VISIT- ING SUCH PORTS AS SAN JUAN , PUERTO R ICO ; ST.

The FORT SNELLING has spent three regular rotational deployments with the Sixth Fleet. The first of these (August 1956 - January 1957) is especially memorable for the ship assisted in the evacuation of American and European Nationals from Egypt during the Suez crisis. While the ship was anchored near Alexandria, Egypt, from 30 October to 2 Nov- ember REPEATED ATTACKS BY BRITISH AIRCRAFT ON EGYPTIAN AIRFIELDS WITH RETURN ANTI-AIRCRAFT FIRE AND OTHER HARASSMENTS WERE OBSERVED. MEANWHILE, A TOTAL OF 284 EVACUEES, INCLUDING SOME 81 CHILDREN, HAD BEEN TAKEN ON BOARD, AND CARING FOR THEM HAD BEGUN. ON 2 NOVEMBER 1956THE SHIP DEPARTED FOR THE ISLAND OF CRETE, AND TWO DAYS LATER HER EVACUEES WERE TRANS- FERRED TO ANOTHER SHIP. THESECONDOF THE MEDITERRANEAN DEPLOYMENTS (JUNE 1958 - DECEMBER 1958) WAS EQUALLY EVENTFUL AS THE FORT SNELLING, ALONG WITH MANY OTHER SIXTH FLEET SHIPS, PARTICIPATED IN THE LANDING OF MARINES AT BEIRUT DURING THE LEBANON CRISIS.
