USS CONSTELLATION Sloop of War 1854Kit

The original USF Constellation started her active life in 1798 and was withdrawn from sevice only in 1955. Her missions were various: during her active service she seized numerous ships while defending the Hawaiian Islands against annexation by England in 1845 and 1849. She was also the first US warship to visit China in 1842.

Our model, U.S.S. Constellation was launched at the Gosport Navy Yard in Norfolk, Virginia in 1854. Bearing the same name as the famous frigate of 1797, she is a sloop-of-war (this means she carried her guns on one deck) of 22 guns. Her original battery was comprised primarily of 8" muzzle loading shell guns. She displaces approximately 1400 tons and is the largest all-sail sloop-of-war built by the US Navy. Constellation is "ship" rigged: each of her three masts carries squaresails with a fore'n aft sail or "spanker" on her mizzen mast. She set 20,000 square feet of sails and is the last all-sail warship built by the U.S. Navy.

Today she brings back glorious memories of the past to tens of thousands of tourists that visit her each year in Baltimore's Inner harbor.
