The Frigate Constitution
Library of Congress Control Number:
The War of 1812 breaks out. The Yankee freedom is at stake.
Live free or die decide the frigate Constitution’s crew led by Captain Hull.
Without given orders they dare to challenge an English frigate. In a severe
battle she surrenders to Yankee courage and seamanship.
While turning over the pages, you will share the hard life of American sailors
and breathe the sea-air. A mosaic of real people and their lives in the
whirlpool of War will open to your eyes: the black boy, sacrificing his chance
to escape to save his dying white friend, an incredible Captain Hull’s
love-story as we all only dream of, seamen working above human limits and not
giving the Constitution up to the British squadron… You will feel as proud as
the ones who fought for the American freedom…
