I am going to compare and contrast one of the original six ships and a modern U.S. Navy ships. So I picked the USS Constellation and the USS Port Royal. The USS Constellation was the first Navy ship to set sail. It first set sail in 1797 and was decommissioned in 1853 and it was the first to destroy an enemy ship. It was armed with 20 cannons and 28 long guns. The USS Constellation was 164 feet and weighed 1265 tons. The USS Port Royal is 567 feet and weighed 9600 tons. It carries many automatic cannon,automatic turrents, and many torpedo launchers.
