I do a lot of reading about what I call the "Old Wars" to try and compare those sea battles to present day sea battles....and I'm still not really sure which was the worst.
Well here is a battle that took place in 1812....some call it the "most famous" sea battle of that conflict...I'm not so sure of that...all were bad in my reading of history....but it is a battle with interest.
Also there is some info on the USF Constitution that may interest you as well.
Hope you find the article interesting
