Like the view of Commodore MacDonnough's Victory, this scene of the battle between the USS Constitution and the British vessel, the Guerriere, seen here on its only form, represents a significant event of the War of 1812.  The USS CONSTITUTION's historic fight with HMS GUERRIERE took place some 600 miles east of Nova Scotia on the afternoon of August 19, 1812.
