Abstract:
She was designed as a Bicentennial project, bearing a brand of authenticity in its fifteen stars and stripes flag. However, this sailing vessel still may have been a point of pride, since clipper ships had played an important role in America the past two centuries, notably during the war of 1812.

Abstract:
New Bern, with maritime roots, became known as a major shipping port by the mid-eighteenth century. This helped to establish its place in the triangular trade and as the most populous town by the Revolution period. The War of 1812 and Civil War negatively impacted the trade-built economy.

Concerning its more current economy, industries contributing to its fiscal health since the nineteenth century were also transportation based: railroads and trucking.
