    I thought it was Algeria. But then I noticed the church in the background... while I suppose this could be a lot of Mexican towns, maybe it is the Battle of Puebla.

    Yeah it is the fall of Pirna in 1756.

    Is it during the War of 1812? Although the ships look like they are from the mid-1800's.

    It's actually earlier.

    Were American ships using that flag before the 1800's?

    Although the paint on the front ship makes me think more of ships from later on.

    I suspect there's some 'artistic freedom' involved where the flags are concerned.

    According to what I've found about one of the ships in the picture, it is thought it would have had either the "sons of liberty" flag or the "grand union" flag.

    You know, that hint about the flags actually narrows things down to but a couple of years.

    So it is roughly a span from 1775 to 1800? I guess that rules out the Barbary Wars.

    I don't understand what is happening in this image? Are all those American ships chasing that British ship? Or were they captured by that British ship? If the flag might be the 'Sons of Liberty' would that not mean that they are merchant vessels? Is this even really a battle or is it Britain enforcing its continental blockade and seizing American merchant ships?

    As I understand it, my remark about flags narrows it down a lot more than that.

    The British ship managed to get away.
