         The " U.S.S. Eagle 56 ( PE-56 ) " was one of 60 Eagle-class patrol craft built by " Henry Ford " late in World War I as submarine chasers, none of which saw action.   However the World War I era patrol boats remained in service through World War II.

         They were unpopular due to their poor sea handling and only eight remained in service by the time that World War II started.   " Eagle 56 " started her World War II service by patrolling off the Delaware Capes in January 1942.

         " Eagle 56 " remained almost constantly at sea during what the German's called " Operation Drumbeat " which was part of the " Battle of the Atlantic " when Axis submarines attacked merchant shipping along the east coast of North America.   When the " Eagle 56's " depth charges were expended, a small ship from Cape May, New Jersey, would bring out a new supply.

The Attack on the
" U.S.S. Eagle 56 ( PE-56 ) "

         The " U.S.S. Eagle 56 ( PE-56 ) " was assigned to Naval Air Station Brunswick starting on June 28, 1944.   At noon on April 23, 1945 " Eagle 56 " exploded amidships and broke into two pieces 3 miles off Cape Elizabeth, Maine.   The destroyer " U.S.S. Selfridge ( DD-357 ) " was operating near " Eagle 56 " and arrived 30 minutes after the explosion to rescue 14 survivors from the crew of 63.   The Selfridge obtained a sharp, well-defined sonar contact during the rescue and dropped nine Mark IX Mod 2 depth charges without obvious result.   According to a classified Navy report, " Germand Submarine U-853 " had been operating in the waters off Maine.

         At a Naval Board of Inquiry in Portland the following week, five of the 14 survivors claimed to have seen a submarine.   Several spotted a red and yellow emblem on the submarine's sail.   These insignia match the markings of U-853: a red horse on a yellow shield.   Eagle 56's boiler was overhauled just two weeks before the sinking, and none of the boilers on the other Eagle Boats had failed.   Nevertheless, the official Navy inquiry concluded that Eagle 56 had suffered a boiler explosion.

         In 2001, the Naval Historical Center reviewed the case and reclassified the sinking as a combat loss.   In June 2001, Purple Heart medals were awarded to three survivors and the next of kin of those killed.   As of 2007, this is the only time that the U.S. Navy has overruled its own Court of Inquiry.

         A commemorative plaque was erected on the grounds of Fort Williams Park near Portland Head Light.   The ship's wreckage was located in June 2018, and visited by a civilian dive team later the same month.   It lies five miles off the coast of Maine at a depth of 300 feet.   A video taken by the divers shows that the " Eagle 56's " boilers are intact.
