J.O. Davidson has captured one of the most dramatic events in USS Constitution's long history, the daring escape from a squadron of British warships in the opening days of the War of 1812. Becalmed off the New Jersey coast, the crew of Constitution used small kedge anchors to pull the ship out of range of enemy fire. After a chase of three days, Constitution escaped when a squall came up and provided much needed wind for her sails.
