A Portrait of a U.S. Frigate
What would USS Philadelphia, featured in Blood and Oak, look like? To get an idea, it's useful to look at the oldest vessel still commissioned in the United States Navy. The USS Constitution was one of six original super-frigates designed for America's early fleet. Although smaller and armed with fewer guns, the USS Philadelphia was a sister ship to "Old Ironsides." The sail plan and deck layout of both vessels had much in common.
