USS Constellation Tour

07 September 2018 | Baltimore, Maryland
George Stonecliffe
I picked up a history book called "Six Frigates", by Ian W. Toll. It is the epic history of the founding of the US Navy. One of the six frigates built under President John Adams was the USS Constellation. Under the leadership of Captain Thomas Truxtun, he overwhelmed and captured a French Man-of-War during the Quasi War when French privateers were capturing American merchant ships particularly in the Caribbean. Finally the US Navy had a military presence so that America could fight back. This ship although not the original was a stunning replica with four decks. The main deck had three masts, yard arms for square sails, and heavy duty lines, blocks and tackle. The gun deck had 20 and 30 pounder guns, 22 in all. The Captain's Quarters, Officers' Country, and the Crews hammocks were all in order. We saw the galley for food preparation, the quarters for the ship's carpenter, the ship's doctor, the dispensary for the wounded, the gun powder magazine, etc. We even saw the pig iron for ballast in the hold. While on shore for lunch, they fired a gun at 12 noon. Thought I would die! It was so loud!!
