The submarine Alexandria (SSN 757) is the third vessel to bear a name that is shared by cities in both Louisiana and Virginia.
The first boat named Alexandria was a side-wheeled steamer built at Plaquemine, La., in 1862, and commissioned in December 1863. From its commissioning until the end of the Civil War, the steamer was assigned to the Mississippi squadron. It operated in the 1st District which encompassed the area between Donaldsonville, La., and Cairo, Ill.
The vessel was sold at Mound City, Ill., in August 1865.
The second Alexandria (PF-18) was a patrol escort launched on January 15, 1944, at Lorain, Ohio, by the Amercian Shipbuilding Company under a maritime commissioning contract. After being commissioned March 11, 1945, the vessel reported to the Atlantic Fleet. The Coast Guard stationed Alexandria off Newfoundland on weather patrol from June 1945 to February 1946. The boat was decommissioned April 10, 1946, and sold one year later.
