This anchor was salvaged from one of 18 ships of the Chesapeake Flotilla fleet of 1814. The United States declared war on Great Britain in 1812. In April 1814, a Royal Navy fleet began looting and pillaging towns along the Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake Flotilla was created to challenge these British ships. In August 1814, the command was given to sink the Chesapeake Flotilla fleet of 18 ships blocking entry to the Chesapeake Bay and protecting the harbor from British attack. This anchor was salvaged from 1 of those 18 ships prior to it being scuttled and was procured by a local tugboat captain. In 1961, the seller purchased the anchor from the tugboat captain and has treasured its rich history ever since.After nearly 200 years, researchers believe they may have found the shipwrecked Scorpion in the Patuxent River. Archaeologists from the Maryland Historical Trust,the U. S. Navy and the Maryland State Highway Administration are in the process of excavating, mapping and filming the remains of a sunken vessel they believe to the be Scorpion. This anchor measures 69" long x 60" stock x 43" across flukes and weighs ~250 pounds and is located in Monkton, MD and is available for local pick-up or it can be shipped to buyer (at buyer's expense). Once buyer's location is determined, cost of shipping will be determined and buyer will be notified.
