The frigate was 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. THE GREAT SHIPS; presents the story of these famed vessels. Discover how they 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. FRIGATES brings the great engagements of the Revolution to life through period art and accounts and expert commentary. And go aboard the most famous frigate of all - the U.S.S. Constitution.The Yankee Frigate not only took a place in history, but helped to shape it.
