†USS Constellation, American Frigate 1798, Artesania Latina Complete Wooden Sailing Boat Kit # 22 850
The Artesania Latina USS Constellation wooden sailing ship model is an
accurate recreation of the actual ship.
In the history of sailing
vessels, it is difficult to encounter a ship whose activities were as diverse as
its use of service. Indeed, the U.S.S Constellation started her active life in
1798 and was withdrawn from service in 1854. Her missions included seizing
numerous ships, defending the Hawaiian Islands against annexation by the British
in 1843 and transporting food to Ireland during the Great Famine of 1845 - 1849.
It was also the first U.S. warship which visits China in 1842 and it
became a training vessel in 1871. Today it brings back glorious memories to tens
of thousands of tourists visiting her each year in Baltimore. If she could talk
she would be able to teach us about American History.
