New Orleans service in the War was considered to be the a ships that would earn more Battlestars than the rest of her fleet. They were so heavily damaging that some even miraculously survived even from the most dangerous of hits. However, not all New Orleans Class Cruiser could survive, as out of the 7, 3 were sunk in the first battle of Savo Island and now lies in Iron Bottom Sound, it was called this because of the ships that lay wrecked there. Nonetheless they were still the most decorated of allwarships pre-war and served their country diligently.
