- A propos de moi
- USS California, a 13,680-ton Pennsylvania class armored cruiser, was built at San Francisco, California. She was commissioned in August 1907, and spent the next ten years serving in the Pacific. California regularly operated along the North American west coast, with occasional cruises to Hawaii and other oceanic islands. In 1912, she briefly deployed to the western Pacific for service on the Asiatic Station.
In September 1914 California was renamed San Diego to make her original name available for assignment to a battleship. She frequently was employed as Pacific Fleet flagship between then and July 1917, when she was sent to the Atlantic for World War I service. San Diego operated as a convoy escort in the North Atlantic until 19 July 1918, when she was sunk off Fire Island, New York, probably by a German mine. San Diego was the only major warship lost by the United States in World War I.
