44-Gun frigate Designed by Josiah Fox, Joshua Humphreys and William Doughty, and built Hartt’s Shipyard in Boston (near the Old North Church and Paul Revere’s house) and launched in 1797. Authorized by act of Continental Congress and newly formed War Office Secretary, General Henry Knox. The act authorized for building of three 44-gun and three 36-gun fast and powerful frigates to ward off attacks by Barbary corsairs on American merchant ships. Secretary Knox initially considered the names of “terrible” and “Revolution” recommended by Humphreys for the new frigate, but Congress adopted the name “Constitution” when the frigate was launched on October 21, 1797. The Ship is shown in its probable 1797 appearance (copper plates omitted) with details which were later removed or altered. model measures: 78” L x 56" H x 28.75” W; The table case measures 95 1/2" L x 90 1/2" H (overall - 60" case) x 34 3/4" W
