The '''''New Orleans''-class''' of [[protected cruiser]]s of the [[United States Navy]] comprised only two ships which were fitting out or building for the [[Brazilian Navy]] at Elswick, near Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, by Armstrong Whitworth. The Brazilian Navy had ordered three [[Elswick cruiser]]s, but already sold the first ship during building to Chile. One ship was delivered to Brazil named {{Ship|Brazilian cruiser|Almirante Barroso|1896|2}}. The third ship was fitting out as ''Amazonas'' and another was on order as ''Almirante Abreu''.

On 16 March 1898 the United States Navy purchased the un-delivered ships to prevent them from being acquired by the [[Spanish Navy]] shortly before [[Spanish-American War]].
