Perhaps the only bathtub installed for a President on an American warship, the tub was installed as a convenience for President Franklin D. Roosevelt when he crossed the Atlantic Ocean to meet with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet Secretary General Joseph Stalin at Casablanca, Morocco on the first leg of the journey to the Tehran Conference in November 1943. After the conference she returned the President to the United States.
