The Pacific-bound, Portland-class cruiser.
Launched on November 7, 1931, the U.S.S. Indianapolis (CA-35) was the second ship to be named after Indiana's state capital. She was ordered to serve in the South Pacific soon after the outbreak of World War II. The Indianapolis transported the uranium used to build the "Little Boy" atomic bomb, which was dropped on Hiroshima. On July 30, 1945, she was torpedoed by the Japanese submarine I-58, sinking within twelve minutes. By the time rescue ships arrived, there were just over 300 survivors (out of 1,196 crewmen).
