by Paul S. Valasek
Named for the German River which flows through Heidelberg, this ship is the second of the NDL line to bear this name. Originally built in 1901, its capacity was 1st class, 148, 2nd class, 116, and steerage 2500. Later expanded in 1905 to hold 2nd class 369, third class, 217 and steerage, 2865, this ship had its maiden voyage April 5, 1901, to New York. Used as a troop transport for German troops of the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Neckar was later used by many Eastern European Immigrants. It was seized by the US government in June 1917 and renamed the Antigone, when it served as a US transport. Renamed the Potomac after World War I, it now served to bring many more Eastern European immigrants to North America starting in May 1921 sailing from Bremen and Danzig (Gdansk)  to New York. In February 1927, the ship was sent to Baltimore for scrapping.
