Upham (DE-283) was laid down on 13 December 1943 at Charleston, S.C., by the Charleston Navy Yard launched on 9 March 1944; and sponsored by Mrs. Mabel Upham, the widow of Admiral Upham. The ship was redesignated APD 99 on 17 July 1944 and was converted to a high-speed transport by the Charleston Navy Yard. She was commissioned on 23 July 1945, Lt. Richard E. Farwell, USNR, in command.

Upham conducted her shakedown training in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, from 8 August to 10 September; during the cruise, the war in the Pacific came to an end with Japan's capitulation in mid-August. Thus, too late to participate in combat, the fast transport exercised with an operational training unit in Chesapeake Bay until 5 October. She then served a brief tour of training duty out of Miami, Fla., from 8 to 22 October.

Then, shifting north to Hampton Roads, Upham reached Norfolk in time for Navy Day festivities before sailing for Jacksonville, Fla., to prepare for inactivation. Decommissioned on 25 April 1946, Upham was placed in the Reserve Fleet group on the St. John's River at Green Cove Springs, Fla. The ship remained inactive until struck from the Navy list on 1 June 1960.

Sold to the government of Colombia in January 1962, the erstwhile fast transport was converted for service as a floating power station and, while not carried on the Colombian Navy list, presumably served in that capacity into the 1970's.

Construction and commissioning

Upham was laid down as the Rudderow-class destroyer escort USS Upham (DE-283) on 13 December 1943 by the Charleston Navy Yard at Charleston, South Carolina, and was launched on 9 March 1944, sponsored by Mrs. Mabel Upham, the widow of the ship ' s namesake, Admiral Frank B. Upham. The ship was reclassified as a Crosley-class high-speed transport and redesignated APD-99 on 17 July 1944. After conversion to her new role, she was commissioned on 23 July 1945 with Lieutenant Richard E. Farwell, USNR, in command.

Character symbolism

Not only did Upham represent the loss of innocence of war but he also symbolised the "Everyman" the moment when he almost picks up the souvenir German helmet symbolises how he could have fought on either side, he was a neutral soldier.

His compassion was what resulted in him causing the deaths of Miller (from convincing him to free Willie) and Mellish when the German stabbed him. The latter in particular metaphorically displays Upham represented how the Americans knew what the Germans were doing to the Jews (Mellish) during WW2 but failed to intervene and make the Germans pay until much later.

His illusion of neutrality faded when he finally had to pick and side and kill Steamboat Willie, his character revelation being how he finally understood the horrors of war. It became clear that Upham had turned into a hardened and true soldier because of the whole experience.

There was also a running gag within the film in how he was the only soldier to not understand what the word "Fubar" meant. When he finally learns what it means when indirectly told by Mellish, it once against highlights his innocence. He also didn't smoke before the battle of Ramelle, a minor example of his innocence as he is only just understanding the stress war can impose on a man.

One More for Good Form

After recovering from his injuries in Egypt, Upham was promoted to Captain and given command of a company of New Zealand troops in the Western Desert of Egypt. During the first Battle of El Alamein, Captain Upham continued his long history of leading from the front. By the evening of July 14 th , he had already been wounded twice but continued to remain with his men.

During an attack on El Ruweisat Ridge, he personally went ahead of his company to assess the initial phase of the attack and braved heavy fire to bring back the vital information.

When his company was ordered into the main assault, they came under heavy fire from four machine gun nests and a number of tanks raining devastating fire down upon his men. However, Captain Upham could be seen and heard above the fire by his men and he rallied them at great risk to himself to take the objective.

He single-handedly destroyed several gun positions and a single German tank with his action, during which he was shot through the elbow, shattering his arm.

Weak from the loss of blood, he was finally removed to the Regimental Aid Post but once his wound was dressed he returned to his men, still under heavy fire. They continued to hold off the numerically overwhelming Germans throughout the day, but when he received additional wounds he finally collapsed and was unable to move.

His company had been reduced to 6 men, and the position was eventually overrun leading to his capture. For these actions, he would be awarded his second Victoria Cross after the war.

Upham APD-99 - History

The US Navy converted a number of destroyer escorts to high speed transports (APD). Some ships were converted during the building process and others converted after having first served as a destroyer escort. The DE was not the only type ship to be converted to a APD. WW I type (four piper) destroyers were altered to have light troop transport capabilities. APD hull numbers 1-36 were converted dest r oyers.

APDs were created by two opposite but complementary situations. The first was a need for light transports with relatively shallow drafts and a capacity to move light army or marine units rapidly to myriads of Pacific islands. The second was a growing excess of DEs in the Atlantic, permitting several to be converted.

To the DE, another deck was added along with troop berthing and messing accommodations. A very large davit was installed on either side, each of which could launch and recover two 36 foot assault landing craft (LCVP). It could carry underwater demolition teams (UDT) or move troops, supplies, light trucks and jeeps to and from the staging areas.

The 3"/50 caliber main battery was replaced with a more efficient destroyer type 5"/38 caliber gun forward in a movable mount. Torpedoes, hedgehogs and K-guns were removed. (1)

Daniel Phillips Upham (1832–1882)

Daniel Phillips Upham was an active Republican politician, businessman, plantation owner, and Arkansas State Militia commander following the Civil War. He is perhaps best remembered, and often vilified, for his part during Reconstruction as the leader of a successful militia campaign against the Ku Klux Klan in the Militia War from 1868 to 1869.

D. P. Upham was born in Dudley, Massachusetts, on December 30, 1832, to Clarissa Phillips and Josiah Upham. His mother died less than a week later at age 29. His father remarried Betsy Larned in March 1836, and the couple had four sons.

Upham received his education at Dudley’s public schools, and he married Massachusetts native Elizabeth (Lizzie) Nash on February 15, 1860. The couple eventually adopted a daughter, Isabel.

Upham struggled as the owner of a bluestone—building material—business in New York City. He left his family and arrived at DeValls Bluff (Prairie County) in April 1865, where his former business associate, Brigadier General Alexander Shaler, was the commanding officer. General Shaler gave Upham the necessary access to the proper licenses for entering the businesses that Upham hoped would relieve his debts. Soon, Upham had profitable interests in two saloons, a cotton plantation, and two steamboats. In July 1865, he visited the Northeast to pay his debts, and he returned with his wife. The couple settled in Augusta (Woodruff County) where Upham owned a cotton plantation and a prosperous store.

Following the Congressional Reconstruction Acts of 1867, Upham was elected to represent Woodruff, Crittenden, and St. Francis counties in the Arkansas House of Representatives. Politically, Upham was a Radical Republican who supported Republican Governor Powell Clayton’s efforts to reshape Arkansas politically, socially, and economically. In the spring of 1868, the Ku Klux Klan, a loosely organized band of former Confederates and sympathizers upset by expansion of black voting rights and the restrictions against former Confederates’ voting rights, began to retaliate by terrorizing white and black Republicans. The state legislature approved the creation of a state guard and reserve militia in July 1868, and Clayton ordered several counties, including Woodruff, to muster up militias in late August.

Upham’s popularity with freedmen and his business success stirred resentment with southern whites, and he became the target of Woodruff County’s Klan. Tensions mounted with political assassinations in nearby counties and public displays of force by the local Klan and Upham’s militia. After numerous threats and reports of nightly Klan surveillance of his home, Upham and F. A. McClure, Woodruff County’s registrar, were ambushed and injured on October 2, 1868.

Governor Clayton canceled elections for president, congress, and legislative vacancies in Woodruff County and ten other counties. Clayton declared martial law in those areas and divided the state into four military districts. After Joseph Brooks turned down the position, Clayton selected Upham to command the northeast military district. The burning conflict would later be termed the Militia War.

Upham set up headquarters near federal troops at Batesville (Independence County) in an effort to stabilize the region. His forces grew to 1,000 white and black troops. He returned to Woodruff County leading more than 100 white troops to face the local Klan led by Confederate veteran Colonel A. C. Pickett. Pickett and his men managed to overrun and pillage Upham’s plantation, but Upham prevented the occupation of Augusta by taking several Klan sympathizers hostage and threatening to kill them if the Klan did not disperse. The tactic seemed to work, but later 100 Klansmen ambushed him and his men. In a series of skirmishes, Upham faced off and defeated the Klan in Woodruff County.

Upham’s resolve, tactics, recruitment of black troops, and occupation of his own county proved controversial and politically divisive. In April 1875, his former enemies in Woodruff County took their revenge just as Democratic Redeemers ended Reconstruction. Upham was tried for the murder of two men during the Militia War. Although he was acquitted and vindicated of wrongdoing, Upham remained an object of scorn in local and standard state histories well into the twentieth century.

Upham and his wife left Woodruff County and settled in Little Rock (Pulaski County) in 1869. He invested in real estate, continued to serve in the Arkansas State Militia, and was a clerk in the Pulaski County Chancery Court. In October 1870, he was appointed brigadier general in command of the Seventh District in central Arkansas. He also served in a series of battles against ex-Confederates in Pope County in 1872. In May 1873, Republican governor Elisha Baxter dismissed him from the Arkansas State Militia along with other men with ties to Powell Clayton. A year later, in the haze of the Brooks-Baxter War, Upham sided with Joseph Brooks and took command of a company of men in Brooks’s unsuccessful attempt to claim the governorship. In the 1870s, he also served on the city council and school board of Little Rock.

In July 1876, President Ulysses S. Grant appointed Upham U.S. marshal for the Western District Court presided over by Judge Isaac C. Parker in Fort Smith (Sebastian County). At first, his appointment raised the specter of his controversial past, but Upham served with distinction and received wide public support. His service as U.S. marshal ended when Arkansas’s former Republican U.S. senator Stephen Dorsey plotted effectively to have him replaced in June of 1880. Upham fought for his reappointment but failed due to opposition from his former ally, Powell Clayton.

In November 1882, with his health failing, he visited family in Massachusetts. He died of “consumption”—that is, tuberculosis—at his father’s house in Dudley, Massachusetts, on November 18, 1882, and was buried in Little Rock’s Oakland Cemetery. His wife and daughter are interred next to him.

Crosley-class high speed transport

Crosley-class high speed transports were high speed transport ships that served in the United States Navy during World War II. Some stayed in commission long enough to serve in the Korean War and the Vietnam War. All of them were converted from Rudderow-class destroyer escorts during construction except for USS Bray (APD-139) , which was converted a year after her construction. After World War II ended, several of the ships were sold to Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, and Colombia.
