The USS United States warship launched in May 1797, boasting superior sailing characteristics and heavy, high-caliber armament. The ship was named by none other than George Washington himself. A top speed of 11 knots made it easy to escape larger ships of the line. As one of the initial US naval ships, the USS United States helped usher in a long, proud tradition of top-of-the-line American vessels.
