 American History 14, volume 2  
The War on the Water by Barnes Public School 1885 :

The war of 1812 with England. While the Americans were defeated on land they had won some brilliant victories at sea. Three days after General Hull had disgraced himself at Detroit, his nephew Captain Isaac Hull, in the ship “Constitution” met the British war ship “Guerriere” off the banks of Newfoundland.

 For two hours they fought desperately. When the British Flag was hauled down, the Guerriere was so completely riddled in the fight that when Captain Hull boarded her she was sinking and he could not tow her into harbor. this was the beginning of a long series of sea fights that followed in which the American Navy won its glory. 



The Old Ship, “Constitution” or “Old Ironsides” as the sailors affectionately called her, is still afloat. (unquote Barnes) Something that caught my eye in this story was the fact that the nephew bravely fought to clear the family name. I just wonder now if he received the Glory due him or if he had to bear his uncle’s shame for his cowardice. 

There’s a lesson in this for us. We are all individuals but we are all proud of our heritage. I’m glad these words were entered by Barnes in 1885 and I’m also glad that I was privileged to possess this old public school book. There is much more ahead in the 19th century.
