USS Mississippi was the first Sidewheel Steam Frigate built in the U.S., and was also a navigation warship of the beginning of the U.S. Navy.
Although the ship of this class had USS Missouri in others, while anchoring to Gibraltar, as for USS Missouri, the sailor's careless accident was burned down by the maiden voyage by the basis.
Therefore, only this warship has participated in the Civil War.
When it came out to the open sea, the steam engine stopped and actually performed the sailing cruise mainly.
However, when in the case of the Sidewheel steamer the driving shaft of an engine and an imported car was removed and it was not made free rotation, a sailing cruise was not completed, but when it was USS Mississippi, the work was started in about 2 hours.
Moreover, in order to return, it is being described in the diary of Perry that it took the double time.
Incidentally, it could be said that there was still a difference of technical capabilities clearly, since it is a thing that the work is ended in 2 to 3 minutes in the case of the outer Sidewheel steamer type warship in Britain.
