One of the large 44 gun frigates of the American navy, United States served alongside her two sister ships: President and Constitution in the 1812 war.  Launched in 1797, United States was the heaviest and by far the slowest of the three, however, she captured the Macedonian 38.  She was finally sunk in the Norfolk Navy yard in 1861 during the civil war.
