Springfield II

(ID. No. 2575 : t. 287 (gross); 1. 127' (reg.); b. 24'; dr. 7' (mean); s 12 k )

The second Springfield (ID No 2575)—a river steamer built in 1901 by Pusey and Jones at Wilmington, Del.—was inspected by officials of the 4th Naval District on 5 April 1918 and chartered soon thereafter from the Delaware River Line.

She was assigned to the 4th Naval District and operated under the direction of the Commandant of the Philadelphia Navy Yard. For almost a year, Springfield carried frieght for the Philadelphia Navy Yard. On 24 March 1919, she was returned to her owner, and her name was struck from the Navy list.
