The USS Savannah was a light cruiser of the Brooklyn-class that served in World War II in the Atlantic and Mediterranean theatres of operation. It also served in the task force that carried President Roosevelt to the Yalta Conference in early 1945. The ship was decommissioned in 1947, stricken from the Navy list in 1959, and sold for scrap in 1960.
