Early History: ADAMS CLASS DESTROYERS
In The Beginning On June 16, 1958, the keel was laid for the USS Charles F. Adams. The ships were based on the existing Forrest Sherman class, and were the first destroyer planned and built as a guided missile ship. The Adams was built at the Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine, and was the first in a line of 23 Ships. She is named for Charles Francis Adams, Secretary of the Navy from 1929 to 1933. Secretary Adams was also a world-class yachtsman, winning the America's Cup in 1921 as the master of the Resolute.
