Chronicles of the Frigate Macedonian, 1809-1922by James Tertius De Kay, James Tertius De Kay
His Majesty's Frigate Macedonian was launched at Woolwich in 1810, at the height of the wars against Napoleon, and what remained of her burned in the Bronx in 1922. She is barely remembered today, but in her time the Macedonian was recognized the world over as the most important prize ever taken by the American navy-a distinction she holds to this day. The history of this one ship, re-commissioned U.S.S. Macedonian after her capture, encompassed the great days of fighting sail, and, more specifically, the brief prominence of the frigate as the most useful and perhaps the most dangerous ship in the major navies of the world.
