USS Oriskany

Recently visited the USS Oriskany Memorial in Oriskany, NY. History buffs will recall that the Battle of Oriskany was a critical engagement during the Revolutionary War. While growing up in upstate NY, I never realized how many local towns have shared namesakes with U.S. Navy ships - Oriskany, Herkimer and Saratoga to name a few.
