Another distinctive mark on the Inner Harbor’s pretty face is the tall masts and sails of the USS Constellation. Actually, there have been several Constellations—the first, built in 1797, was the first American ship to put to sea and the first American ship to defeat and capture an enemy vessel. It was broken up in 1853. The second Constellation is here in Baltimore. Built in 1854, this grand sloop-of-war was one of the flagships of the U.S. Navy throughout the 19th century, quite literally circumnavigating the globe in service to her country. The boat, which admittedly has been rebuilt with features taken from 1797 and 1854, is part of the Historic Ships in Baltimore exhibit, which preserves several other historic American warships for the sake of all you nautical nuts.
