At the time, the schooner was one of the fastest ships afloat and she played an important part in the "War of 1812" between the United States of America and the British Empire, which actually was fought from 1812 to 1815. 'Catch Me Who Can' was generally faster than most of the British ships she came up against and she is shown here in the foreground, neck-and-neck with a British ship which has just put a shot across her bows in warning. 'Catch Me Who Can' was not captured throughout a war in which the Baltimore clippers generally acted as bounty-hunters, chasing down British ships for a reward. The American Navy at the time was small, but the clippers were fast and the American sailors aboard were paid well for their risky heroics during this campaign.
