A BIT OF INTRIGUING HISTORY:
Built-in New York by Adam and Noah Brown in a typical body plan of the American Privateers, she was one of the fastest ships of the United States army in the war of 1812.
In 1814, she was chased 17 times by British men-of-war and she outran them every time.
After a triumphant victory against the British navy, she returned to Boston and when she sailed again in December of 1814, she was fully crewed with 120 men under Nicolas Millin, she was chased through a severe gale by three British frigates. The Prince (Neufchatel) lost the spars in the chase and so was taken.
Sir George Collier was so impressed with her sailing speed (13 knots), she sent her to England where she was measured for copying.
