CharlieZardoz Posted August 31, 2015 Author Share #91 Posted August 31, 2015 Ok Frolick here is the image from Chatham's pictoral history of 1812 stern detail for United States. While it's a tad -er cartoony I see what you mean that yes this appears as if someone is copied the details in an attempt to make them look accurate. The Macedonian looks pretty much as it should. The United States has 7 windows and 2 weird looking half windows, with a lot of plant like wreath-y material as decorations and two stern guns with square cutouts, which I have seen in other depictions of her stern. I am not sure what you mean by quarterdeck roundhouses though so I included the spar deck plan as well. I am very curious if this stern would have remained all the way up to the civil war. I am going to assume that she was likely altered same time Constitution was with a more regular stern and fewer windows however many of the Potomac class ships appear in period paintings with stern images to also have that kinda "M" shape in the mouldings just like the Constitution class ships so maybe she stayed like this up to the end minus a few details?
