Launched at Woolwich in 1810, at the height of the Napoleonic Wars, the "Macedonian" is barely remembered today. In her time though, she was recognized as the most important prize ever taken by the American Navy. The story of her career is full of excitement, and is also the story of the gunboat diplomacy that defined international relations in the 19th century.
