USS North Carolina 74-gun ship of the line, 1818-1867

Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships wrote:
(SL: t. 2,633; 1. 196'3"; b. 53'6" dph. 21'6"; cpl. 820; a. 74 guns)

The first North Carolina was laid down in 1818 by the Philadelphia Navy Yard; launched 7 September 1820; and fitted out in the Norfolk Navy Yard. Master Commandant Charles W. Morgan was assigned to North Carolina as her first c ommanding officer 24 June 1824.

Considered by many the most powerful naval vessel then afloat, North Carolina served in the Mediterranean as flagship for Commodore John Rodgers from 29 April 1825 until 18 May 1827. In the early days of the Republic, as today, a display of naval might brought a nation prestige and enhanced her commerce. Such was the case as Rodgers' squadron which laid the groundwork for the 1830 commercial treaty with Turkey opening ports of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea to American traders.

After a period in ordinary at Norfolk, North Carolina decommissioned 30 October 1836 to fit out for the Pacific Station, the one other area where ships of her vast size could be employed. Only the Mediterranean and the western coast of South America at that time offered ports which could accommodate ships of great draft. Again flagship of her station, North Carolina reached Callao, Peru 26, May 1837. With war raging between Chile and Peru, and relations between the United State s and Mexico strained, North Carolina protected the important American commerce of the eastern Pacific until March 1839. Since her great size made her less flexible than smaller ships, she returned to the New York Navy Yard in June, and serv ed as a receiving ship until placed in ordinary in 1866. She was sold at New York 1 October 1867.

Here are some photos of a model of Ship of the Line USS North Carolina appearing in the gift shop of the Battleship North Carolina Museum at Wilmington, NC.
