    Default Help Needed Please

    Ok I am stumped. I am reflagging my Guerriere model and can't determine the proper ensign flown during her final action wit USS Constitution. The numerous paintings of the battle are inconsistent with a few showing the white ensign and the remainder divided with half showing the red and the other half the blue. Which is correct? Does anyone on the Anchorage have an educated opinion?

    Vol, a couple of years ago Carl Herzog of the USS Constitution Museum contacted me about using one of my photos for a video he was doing. Maybe try to reach him via the museum? www.ussconstitutionmuseum.org

    I'll PM you his email as he contacted me via private message.

    Thanks Jim. I sent an email to Mr. Herzog this morning. Hopefully he can shed some light on my enquiry.
