Plate from the British frigate Guerriere.
Captain Isacc Hull, commander of the US frigate Constitution, kept the plate as a souvenir of the battle between the two ships on August 19, 1812. Engaging with the Constitution off the coast of Nova Scotia, the Guerriere surrendered after only 35 minutes, having suffered huge casualties and great damage to the ship.
This was the battle that earned the Constitution the nickname “Old Ironsides.”
In America, the War of 1812 is often referred to as the “Second War of Independence.”
