These sleek, fast, and maneuverable vessels became famous as privateers during the War of 1812. Their success in capturing British merchant ships inspired the Royal Navy's attack on Baltimore in 1814. When Francis Scott Key saw the American flag still flying after the all-night bombardment of Fort McHenry, he was inspired to pen the "Star-Spangled Banner." Since her commissioning in October of 1988, Pride has represented the people of Maryland -- traveling over 250,000 nautical miles, visiting 40 countries, and docking in over 200 ports of call. Each year over 100,000 people cross her deck. « less
