HISTORY OF USS CONSTELLATION SHIP: FRIGATE MODEL
Have fun with the wooden model of the famous USS Constellation frigate of the US Navy. It is difficult to find in the annals of the sailing naval history a boat with almost as much diversity of occupations as years of service, that is the case of the US Constellation.
Built in 1797 in Baltimore, this frigate had among its missions to seize numerous ships, prevent the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands by the English Navy in 1843 or transport food to Ireland during the great potato famine of 1845-49. It was also the first American warship to visit China in 1842 and was designated a school vessel in 1871.
Today, it is a museum boat available to its visitors in the city that gave birth to it.
