By 1805 the 44-gun frigate was all but dismissed as a failed experiment, whilst the 38-gun frigate was viewed as the vessel of the future. Ten years later, every navy was building 44-gun frigates and today they are viewed as the archetypal Napeoleonic-era cruiser. This opinion resulted from the remarkable transformation in opinion resulted from the performance of three ships - the Constitution, United States, and President - 44-gun frigates built for the United States Navy between 1794 and 1799. Their victories in the naval War of 1812, as well as their success against the Barbary Pirates, caught the imagination of the world. This book examines the construction of the American heavy frigate and outlines the factors that spurred all navies into re-examining this class.
