The age of fighting sail is usually perceived as a battle for the ocean between European powers, but between 1754 and 1834 there was also a massive shipbuilding effort on both sides of the Great Lakes. These great expanses of fresh water saw the construction of warships that ranged from simple rowing gunboats to gigantic three-deckers that could have held their own in Nelson's line of battle.
