It is difficult to encounter in the history of sailing vessels a ship with so many diverse activities during her active life as the American frigate U.S. Constellation. In fact she started her active life in 1798 and was withdrawn from service in 1955. Her missions were various. She seized numerous ships, and defended the Hawaii Islands against annexation by the British in 1845 and 1849. She was also the first US warship to visit China in 1842 and was assigned as a school ship in 1871. Today she brings back glorious memories to tens of thousands of tourists who visit her each year in Baltimore. If she could talk, she could tell us a great deal of American History.
