U.S. Brig Niagara Under Full Sail

Because sailing ship technology did not change dramatically through the nineteenth century, the commercial vessel depicted by George Curtis in the 1870s was not dissimilar to the one shown under sail in this film clip—a 1988 replica of the U.S. Brig Niagara, in which Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry fought during the War of 1812.
