Bone Model Of Essex

Date:
c. 1800s

The people of Essex County and Salem, Massachusetts, presented the 36-gun frigate Essex to the U.S. Navy in 1799. Within weeks she began active service in the Quasi-War with France. Essex had two tours of duty in the Mediterranean against the Barbary pirates between 1801 and 1805. Captain David Porter commanded her throughout the War of 1812. In a single cruise in the summer of 1812 she captured ten prizes. Porter's journey to the Pacific, where he decimated the English whaling fleet, brought Essex greater renown. Read more »
