Charles J Lundgren (1911 - 1988) "Prince de Neufchatel" Oil on masonite painting. Signed lower right. The Prince de Neufchatel was built in 1813. It operated as an American privateer in the War of 1812. One of the most remarkable actions of this war in which an American privateer was engaged was that between the British 40-gun frigate Endymion , Captain Henry Hope, and the armed ship Prince de Neufch?tel. The extraordinary feature of this affair lies in the fact that a vessel fitted out at private expense actually frustrated the utmost endeavors of an English frigate, of vastly superior of force in guns and men, to capture the privateer. As the commander of the Endymion said, he lost as many men in his efforts to seize the Prince de Neufch?tel as he would have done had his ship engaged a regular man-or-war of equal force, and he generously acknowledged that the people in the privateer conducted their defense in the most heroic and skillful manner.
