Pages of History: Ships depart early due to quarantine

From the pages of the Crescent City American, September 1927.

The two destroyers, the U.S.S. Thompson and U.S.S. Farquarh, that arrived here Tuesday forenoon with the intention of staying here over today to help in the celebration of Navy Day, put to sea Wednesday morning at about 8:30 o’clock after having spent the night.

Orders to sail having come after the officers learned that the county was being quarantined in an effort to prevent the spread of infantile paralysis. 

Great plans had been made for the entertainment of the officers and men from aboard the two Navy ships and it was with reluctance that the people of Crescent City saw the two ships pull up their anchors and put to sea.
