USS Chancellorsville (CG-62) is a Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser in service in the United States Navy. She is named for the Confederate victory over Union forces under Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia. United States Navy ships are rarely named for Confederate victories in the American Civil War.
Chancellorsville carries guided missiles and rapid-fire cannons, with anti-air, anti-surface and anti-subsurface capabilities. She also carries two Seahawk LAMPS multi-purpose helicopters, but mainly for anti-submarine warfare.
Following deployment to the North Persian Gulf in 1995 in support of Fifth Fleet operations, the Chancellorsville was awarded the Spokane Trophy in 1996. The Spokane Trophy is awarded by Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet (CINCPACFLT) to the surface combatant ship considered to be the most proficient in overall combat systems readiness and warfare operations.

In August 2006, the Chancellorsville swapped with the USS Shiloh based in San Diego, California. The Chancellorsville's homeport was changed to San Diego, with the Shiloh moving to Yokosuka. The crews remain in their respective locations.
