Notes

Built in 1776, "Philadelphia" is the oldest American fighting vessel in existence. She sank on October 11, 1776, in Lake Champlain during the Battle of Valcour Island, when an American flotilla commanded by General Benedict Arnold was defeated by a British fleet. The "Philadelphia" was raised in 1935 and came to the Smithsonian in 1964.
