Mamoli Lexington
The Lexington belonged to a small fleet of merchant ships, which were hastily converted into war ships in Philadelphia between 1775/77. Under captain John Barry’s command the Lexington was successfully engaged in battle on April 7th, 1776 against the corvette Edward.

Later that same year the Lexington was captured by the British frigate Pearl. The crew then recaptured the boat in a daring move and returned it to Baltimore.

During the following year the Lexington sailed to France and, together with other ships, took part in various battles in the Bay of Biscay, the English Channel and the Irish coast. A number of English ships were captured. On September 20th, 1777 on its return trip from France the Lexington was captured by the English cutter Alert. After a fight of more than three hours the Lexington ran out of ammunition and had to surrender. Thus at least the lives of the crew, already decimated by enemy fire, were saved.

A Double planked hull construction using Lime and Walnut strips, pre cut frames and keel, deck planked in tanganyika, fittings made from brass, walnut, boxwood, and beech, wooden masts and spars, cast stern galleries, brass cannon barrels, rigging cord and silk flags.
