It was later reported that Julia Gardiner, on the night of 27 February, had a frightening dream that while she was aboard a warship a pair of white horses came toward her, each bearing a skeleton as its rider. One skeleton had her father's face. Julia went to her father that morning and told him of her nightmare. The vessel of which she had dreamed resembled the new Princeton closely. Terrified by her experience, she begged Colonel Gardiner not to take the planned cruise. He brushed aside his daughter's fears as the result of "overwrought nerves," and refused to change their plans.

Their difference of opinion concerned the relative merits of the two flattops.

Thus the first of the new carriers was altered from USS Amsterdam to USS Independence, which in turn gave that name to the nine-ship class.
