The U.S.S. Ticonderoga (CV/CVA/CVS-14) was one of 24 Essex class aircraft carriers built during World War II for the United States Navy. The ship was the fourth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name, and was named for historic Fort Ticonderoga, which played a role in the American Revolutionary War. Ticonderoga was commissioned in May 1944, and served in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operations, earning five battle stars. Decommissioned shortly after the end of the war, she was modernized and recommissioned in the early 1950s as an attack carrier (CVA), and then eventually became an antisubmarine carrier (CVS). She was recommissioned too late to participate in the Korean War, but was very active in the Vietnam War, earning three Navy Unit Commendations, one Meritorious Unit Commendation, and 12 battle stars.

Ticonderoga differed somewhat from the five Essex class ships with lower hull numbers in that she was 16 ft (4.9 m) longer to accommodate bow mounted anti aircraft guns. Most subsequent Essex class carriers were completed to this ''long-hull'' design and are considered by some authorities to be a separate class, the Ticonderoga class. Ticonderoga was decommissioned in 1973 and sold for scrap in 1975.
