The celebrated battle between the U.S.S. Constitution and the H.M.S. Guerriere during the war of 1812 was actually the second time these two frigates had met on the open sea. A few weeks prior to their historic conflict, a British squadron led by the lordly Guerriere surround the frigate. With escape seemingly impossible, the captain of the Constitution, Isaac Hull, ordered out the small boats and by kedging a maneuver whereby an anchor has dropped some distance ahead and the hawser heaved in, the sip was gradually pulled forward. Hull also ordered most of the freshwater pumped overboard and the sails went down to catch every breath of air. The Constitution escaped. several weeks later the two warships met again, alone this time, and the mighty Constitution completely destroyed the Guerriere
