- Presents the story of the frigate, the most versatile and arguably the most vital warship in the age of sail. Through the late 18th and early 19th centuries, they prowled the seas, acting as the "eyes of the fleet" for the navies they served. Frigates were the heart of the first American Navy - not from choice, but because the Colonies could afford these small swift ships that could be built in only two months. Traditionally used for dispatches and scouting, the American ships were armed with enough guns to devastate the renowned Royal British Navy. Brings the great engagements of the Revolution to life through period art and accounts and expert commentary. Go aboard the most famous frigate of all - the U.S.S. Constitution.
