HoF = June 17, 1873

Susan B. Anthony’s court trial began today in 1873 – she had been arrested for voting in the previous November’s election. Although the trial would lead to a conviction, Anthony refused to pay the fine she was sentenced to; authorities decided not to pursue further legal action.

4. well

She should be on a paper dollar instead of some of these slave owning presidents. How about naming an aircraft carrier after her. Just my two cents.

6. Unlikely that any new ship will be named after her.

She likely won't have an aircraft carrier named after her, as she already had a U.S. Navy ship that carried her name, which was sunk in combat. General naval policy (but not a hard-fast rule) is that it is o.k. to rename a later ship the same name as an earlier ship, but not if it was lost in combat. The only exception to that rule, that I know of, is the U.S.S. Indianapolis (CA-35, sunk by a Japanese submarine in World War II), was also a U.S. Nuclear Submarine, (SSN 697, U.S.S. Indianapolis, (1980-1998)) and is to be the name of a new littoral combat ship.

Yes, it is done from time to time, but in this case, I doubt we'll see any more ships- especially any carrier, named for her.

The first U.S.S. Susan B. Anthony was launched in 1930, and sunk on June 7, 1944, off the coast of France, during D-Day operations.

7. That is simply not true

It is very common to reuse the name of a ship in the Navy. Even when the previous one was lost in combat.

Here are just some examples:

USS Chicago (CA-29) Heavy Cruiser - sunk at the Battle of Rennell Island in 1943
USS Chicago (CA-146) Heavy Cruiser 1945 - 1984
USS Chicago (SSN-721) Nuclear Attack Submarine 1986 - present

USS Yorktown (CV-5) Aircraft carrier sunk in 1942
USS Yorktown (CV-10) Aircraft carrier commissioned in 1943 - now a museum
USS Yorktown (CG-48) Cruiser commissioned in 1984 - slated to be scrapped

USS Wasp (CV-7) Aircraft carrier built in 1936 and sunk in 1942
USS Wasp (CV-18) Aircraft carrier 1943 - 1972
USS Wasp (LHD-1) Amphibious assualt ship 1989 - present

USS Lexington (CV-2) Aircraft carrier sunk in 1942
USS Lexington (CV-16) Aircraft carrier 1943-1991

USS Aaron Ward (DD-483) 1942 - sunk in 1943
USS Aaron Ward (DM-34) 1944-1945

USS Princeton (CVL-23) Sunk at Leyte Gulf in 1944
USS Princeton (CV-37) 1945 - 1970
USS Princeton (CG-59) 1989 - present

USS Barton (DD-559) Destroyer sunk in 1942
USS Barton (DD-722) Destroyer 1943-1968

USS Helena (CL-50) Light Cruiser 1939 - sunk at the Battle of Kula Gulf in 1943
USS Helena (CA-75) Heavy Cruiser 1945 - 1964
USS Helena (SSN-725) Nuclear Attack Submarine 1987 - present


For many more examples, go to this page:
http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq82-1.htm
(A history of ships sunk or damaged beyond repair in WWII)
and search for the name of any ship listed as sunk on that list - you will find that a majority the names were reused on other ships.
