Revenge IV

(Sch.: 1. 102'; b. 23'; dph. 12')

The fourth Revenge, a schooner built at Baltimore in 1812 for service as a privateer, was bottled up in Chesapeake Bay by British blockaders. She was purchased by the Navy in 1813 to cruise in the lower bay to protect small ships and to warn coastal communities of British raids.
