“The Lost Ship” is a really great article put together by Joel at Today’s History Lesson.
This day in history marks one of the blackest days in U.S. Naval history. Shortly after midnight on July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was attacked and sunk in the Philippine Sea by Japanese submarine I-58. But there were hundreds of ships and subs sunk during the United States’ 4-year involvement in World War II, so it wasn’t the sinking itself.
