The second North Carolina (ACR-12) was laid down 21 March 1905 by Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Doek Co., Newport News, Va.; launched 6 October 1906; sponsored bv Miss Rebekah Glenn, daughter of the Governor of North Carolina; and commissioned at Norfolk 7 May 1908, Captain William A. Marshall in command.

Following shakedown along the eastern seaboard and in the Caribbean, North Carolina carried President-elect William Howard Taft on an inspection tour to the Panama Canal in January and February 1909. Between 23 April and 3 August, the new battleship cruised the Mediterranean. Sailing with Montana to protect Americans threatened by eonfliet in the

Turkish Empire. North Carolina sent a medical relief party ashore 17 May to Adana, Turkey, to treat both wounded and desperately ill Armenians, victims of massacre. North Carolina provided food, shelter, disinfectants, distilled water, dressings and medicines, and assisted other relief agencies already on the scene. For the remainder of her Mediterranean cruise, North Carolina cruised the Levant succoring American citizens and refugees from oppression.

In the years before World War I, North Carolina trained and maneuvered in the western Atlantic and Caribbean and participated in ceremonial and diplomatic activities. Highlights included attending centennial celebrations of the independenee of Argentina (May-June 1910) and Venezuela (June-July 1911); carrying the Seeretary of War for an inspeetion tour of Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Cuba, and the Panama Canal (July-August 1911); and bringing home from Cuba bodies of the crew of Maine for their final interment in Arlington National Cemetery.

As war began in Europe, North Carolina departed Boston 7 August 1915 to protect Americans in the Near East. After ealling at ports of England and France she cruised constantly between Jaffa, Beirut, and Alexandria, her presence a reminder of the might of the still neutral United States. She returned to Boston 18 June 1915 for overhaul.

Reaehing Pensseola, Fla., 9 September 1915, North Carolina contributed to the development of naval aviation through service as station ship. On 5 November 1915, she became the first ship ever to launch an aircraft by catapult while under way. This experimental work led to the use of catapults on battleships and cruisers through World War II, and to the steam catapults on present-day aircraft carriers.

When the United States entered World War I, North Carolina sailed north to escort troop transports plying between

Norfolk and New York. Between December 1918 and July 1919, she brought men of the AEF home from Europe. Renamed Charlotte 7 June 1920 so that her original name might be assigned to a new battleship, she decommissioned at Puget Sound Navy Yard, Bremerton, Wash., 18 February 1921. Her name was struck from the Navy List 15 July 1930, and she was sold for scrapping 29 September 1930.

The name North Carolina was assigned to BB-52, laid down at Norfolk Navy Yard 12 January 1920. However, work was halted 8 February 1922 under terms of the Washington Treaty for the Limitation of Naval Armaments, and the battleship's uncompleted hull sold for scrapping 25 October 1923. Her name was struck from the Navy List 10 November 1923.


Tangled Roots and Trees

Recently, I contacted an Ancestry.com member, who had several obituaries attached to his family tree which were written about the descendants of Leroy P. Jennings, my great grandfather's first cousin. We emailed back and forth and have spoken by telephone, sharing our information about the Jennings family.

His grandfather was James Henly Jennings, the oldest son of Leroy and his second wife, Sarah Ellen Clements, and Leroy's first child born in Texas. James was born on 12 October 1886 in Lorena, Texas, and married Mary Hanna Tellaro on 14 May 1909. The newspaper article about the marriage stated James was a prominent rice planter from Lissie and Mary was a daughter of Italian immigrants who settled in Chesterville. The next year James was still growing rice on a farm he rented in Lissie but in 1911, he and Mary had moved to Houston where James worked for Dickson Car Wheel Company.

When James registered for the World War I draft on 5 June 1917, he continued to work for Dickson Car Wheel Company as a wheel moulder and he and Mary had two children. He claimed an exemption from the draft due to his dependents. The government must not have agreed, however, because when his father's obituary was published in 1919, James was in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS North Carolina. When the 1920 census was enumerated James and his family were back in Houston. So I know he served on the ship for some period of time between 5 June 1917 and 12 January 1920.

The USS North Carolina (ACR-12) was a Tennessee-class armored cruised built in 1905 by the Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company. She was launched on 6 October 1906 by Rebekah Glenn, a daughter of the governor of North Carolina, and commissioned on 7 May 1908. During World War I, she became the first ship to launch a plane by catapult while underway.

I contacted the curator of the USS Battleship North Carolina (BB-55) archive and asked about the World War I service of her predecessor, the armored cruiser ACR-12. She told me the following information about the ship's service:

When the U.S. entered the war, the USS North Carolina (ACR-12) was assigned to the Cruiser and Transport Force and began escorting ships across the Atlantic in July 1917. Her home port was New York City. She made nine trips across the Atlantic Ocean, covering 60,000 miles and safely escorting 61 troop transport ships to the French coast. From December 1918 to July 1919 she ferried the American Expeditionary Forces home from Europe. Overall, she brought nearly 9,000 men home.

USS North Carolina (BB-55) archives include muster rolls for March and September 1919. James Henly Jennings did not appear on those rolls. However, they do not have rolls for July 1919, so it is possible he was onboard at that time. In July 1919, the archive curator told me she was detached from the transport force and ordered to the Pacific. She went into reduced commission at Bremerton, Washington. In July 1920 she was renamed Charlotte (CA-12) so that her name could be used for a new battleship. She was decommissioned in 1921.

10 October 2015 Update: One of my fellow Jennings researchers discovered that it was not James Henly Jennings who served on the USS North Carolina, but rather his brother, Leroy Carrington Jennings, Sr. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1917 to 1919. He played in the ship's band. The source of the confusion was his father's obituary, which was published in the Tulia Herald on 4 July 1919. The paragraph that confused me:

"He is survived by his widow and 17 children and all except three were at his bedside when the end came. They are as follows: O. W. [Oscar William] Jennings, Peoria, Ariz. Mrs. M. E. [Minnie Etta] Henry, Broaddus, Texas E. W. [Edgar Willis] Jennings, Lufkin, Texas H. L. [Harry Lee] Jennings, Ontario, Cal. C. M. [Charles Marion] Jennings, Palestine, Texas Mrs. R. B. [Rosa Bell] Key, Tulia, Texas A. H. [Archie Herbert] Jennings, Louisville, Colo. Mrs. E. H. [Cora Jane, married to cousin, Edward Henry] Jennings, Jacksonville, Texas J. H. [James Henly] Jennings, United States cruiser North Carolina Mrs. H. L. [Hilda Lillian] Stevens, H. M. [Henry Meriwether] Jennings, Jennie, Clarence, Bernardine, Lucille, and Leona Jennings, all of this city."

What I didn't catch was that son, Leroy Carrington Jennings, Sr., was omitted from the list of survivors. Since they are in age order, he should have been listed between James Henly and Hilda Lillian. Leroy, or Roy as he was called, was the one serving on the USS North Carolina. James Henly Jennings lived in Houston and worked for the Dickson Car Wheel Company as a wheel moulder during the war. He had a wife and two children at the time he registered for the World War I draft.


RESEARCH

The Battleship’s photograph, paper and book archives are primarily a research source for historical and technical information about the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA (BB-55) but there are also materials on the other NORTH CAROLINA ships.

The Battleship does not keep official military records. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration maintains all official military records. Military veterans or next-of-kin of a deceased veteran may order a copy of the records through the website www.archives.gov/veterans.


World War I

As war began in Europe, North Carolina departed Boston on 7 August 1914 to protect Americans in the Near East by helping them evacuate and return to the United States. She rendezvoused with the USS Tennessee off Cape Cod before crossing the Atlantic. After calling at ports of England and France, she cruised constantly between Jaffa, Beirut, and Alexandria, her presence a reminder of the might of still neutral America. She returned to Boston on 18 June for overhaul. [3]

Pensacola, Florida on 9 September, North Carolina contributed to the development of naval aviation through service as station ship. On 5 November, she became the first ship ever to launch an aircraft (a Curtiss Model AB-2) by catapult while under way, flown by Captain Henry C. Mustin, Navy Air Pilot No.3, and Naval Aviator No. 11. This experimental work led to the use of catapults on battleships and cruisers through World War II, and to the steam catapults on present-day aircraft carriers. [3]

When the U.S. entered the war, North Carolina sailed north to escort troop transports plying between Norfolk and New York. [3]

North Carolina II ACR-12 - History

The Nursing Practice Act regulates the practice of nursing in North Carolina and guides the work of the Board.

Article 9. Nurse Practice Act. §§ 90-158 through 90-171.18: Recodified as §§ 90-171.19 through 90-171.47.

Proposed Changes to Laws

Updates to the North Carolina Nursing Practice Act (NPA) became effective October 1 st , 2019. Self-reports regarding arrests or indictments should now be made to the North Carolina Board of Nursing within 30 days for any of the following: (1) any felony arrest or indictment (2) any arrest for driving while impaired or driving under the influence and (3) any arrest or indictment for the possession, use, or sale of any controlled substance. It is also important to note that failure to respond to the Board&rsquos inquiries in a reasonable manner or time regarding any matter affecting the license to practice nursing is reason for disciplinary action by the Board (North Carolina Session Law 2019-180, 2019 - PART II ). These changes are among several updates to the NPA outlined in legislation passed by the North Carolina General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Cooper. Updates to the NPA are made to reflect the current practice of nursing in an ever-changing health care environment and to ensure that the laws governing the regulation of nursing practice in North Carolina facilitate the work of the Board in its legislated mandate to protect the safety of the public.

The North Carolina General Assembly has not made major updates to the NPA for several years. However, during the 2019-2020 legislative session, Representative Donna McDowell White (a registered nurse) championed legislation to make much-needed changes to the NPA to protect the safety of the public and enhance the operational efficiency of the Board. The updates outlined in Session Law 2019-180 include revision of vague, outdated (pre-HIPAA) language in the NPA, formatting and definition revisions, clarification of the subpoena power and disciplinary authority of the Board, and confidentiality protections for materials gathered by the Board. The Board regulates the practice of nursing for more than 160,000 nurses in North Carolina. Updates to the NPA are made to reflect the current practice of nursing in an ever-changing health care environment and to ensure that the laws governing the regulation of nursing practice in North Carolina facilitate the work of the Board in its legislated mandate to protect the safety of the public.

USS North Carolina BB-55 - Model Warship

For half a century prior to laying [the Iowa class] down, the U.S. Navy had consistently advocated armor and firepower at the expense of speed. Even in adopting fast battleships of the North Carolina class, it had preferred the slower of two alternative designs.Great and expensive improvements in machinery design had been used to minimize the increased power on the designs rather than make. The two North Carolina class battleships (North Carolina and Washington) were the first US battleships to be commissioned after the 1922 Washington Naval treaty banning capital ship production for 10 years. Both ships were in commission prior to World War 2 and saw a great deal of action during the conflict. Most of.

KOREAN WAR

With both leaders claiming jurisdiction over the entire Korean Peninsula, tensions soon reached a breaking point. In 1950, with the backing of the Soviet Union and China, North Korean forces invaded South Korea, setting off the Korean War.

The United States came to the South’s aid, leading an army of some 340,000 United Nations troops in opposing the invasion. After three years of bitter fighting and more than 2.5 million military and civilian casualties, both sides signed an armistice in the Korean War in July 1953.

The agreement left the borders of North and South Korea essentially unchanged, with a heavily guarded demilitarized zone about 2.5 miles wide running roughly along the 38th parallel. A formal peace treaty, however, was never signed.

According to Kim Robinson Sincox, museum services director for the Battleship North Carolina Memorial, the correct answer is four.

The ship-of-the-line North Carolina was authorized by Congress in 1816, launched at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Sept. 7, 1820, and entered active service in 1824 when Master Commandant Charles W. Morgan was assigned as her first commanding officer. Rated as carrying 74 guns, it in fact mounted as many as 90 cannon at various times. It was flagship for the U.S. Mediterranean squadron from 1825 to 1827 and flagship of the Pacific squadron, 1836-1837. After 1839, it was moored as a receiving ship (essentially, a floating recruit depot) at the New York Navy Yard, remaining there until after the Civil War. It was sold in 1867.

USS North Carolina (ACR-12) was a Tennesee-class armored cruiser, launched at Newport News, Va. in 1906, commissioned on May, 7, 1908, and in service until 1921. Among other duties, it carried President Taft on a tour of the Panama Canal in 1909 and cruised the Mediterranean in 1914-1915 to aid in the evacuation of Americans following the outbreak of World War I. On Nov. 5, 1915, it became the first U.S. warship to launch an aircraft by catapult, while stationed at Pensacola, Fla. During World War I, it escorted troop ships and convoys on trans-Atlantic routes. On June 7, 1920, it was recommissioned the USS Charlotte. Decommissioned in 1921, it was sold as scrap in 1930. The Battleship Memorial has furniture, silverware and other memorabilia from ACR-12.

USS North Carolina (BB-55), “the Immortal Showboat,” is the World War II-era battleship now moored on the Cape Fear River across from downtown Wilmington. For more about this historic vessel, click here.

USS North Carolina (SSN-777) is a Virginia-class nuclear attack submarine. Launched in 2007, it was formally commissioned on May 3, 2008, in Wilmington, N.C., in ceremonies linking it to the Battleship Memorial. As of 2014, it is part of the U.S. Pacific Fleet’s Submarine Squadron 1, homeported at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The submarine carries teak from the deck of BB-55 and has some of the silverware from ACR-12, linking it to the earlier North Carolinas.

Some sources will list five “North Carolinas.” The fifth would have been BB-52, a South Dakota-class battleship. It was laid down on Jan. 12, 1920, at the Norfolk York Naval Shipyard and assigned the name of the Tar Heel State. (The cruiser North Carolina was renamed about this time to avoid duplication.) Under terms of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922, however — which limited the size of great-power navies after World War II — this North Carolina was canceled when roughly one-third complete and was sold for scrap in 1923. Since it was never commissioned, it was never formally part of the Navy.

During the Civil War, the Confederate Navy had a CSS North Carolina, built in 1863 at the Beery shipyard in Wilmington. Found to be unfitted for sea duty, it was used as a floating battery and sank off Smithville (modern-day Southport) on Sept. 27, 1864.
