The USS Ericsson was a US Navy destroyer. In the last years of the Great War, the Ericsson found itself in a cat-and-mouse game with the Confederatesubmersible the CSS Bonefish, commanded by Roger Kimball. Shortly after the Great War ended in 1917, the Bonefish happened upon the Ericsson. Kimball decided to sink the ship, illegally.
Kimball was shot to death a few years later by Sylvia Enos, the widow of George Enos, a sailor who went down with the Ericsson.
