Artist's Proof. On February 20, 1815 two British men of war, a light frigate of 34 guns and a corvette of 22 guns set their sights for a heavy American frigate. The first shot was fired at sunset and within an hour the British ship H.M.S. Cyane surrendered and after a nearly two-hour pursuit the H.M.S. Levant followed suit. The heavy American frigate was the famed U.S.S. Constitution, "Old Ironsides," with three victories and no defeats to her credit.
