From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Five ships of the United States Navy have been named Active.

  • The USS Active (1779), was a brigantine-rigged packet launched in 1779 and captured by the British man-of-war HMS Proserpine on 23 March 1782.
  • Active was a cutter chartered by the Revenue Cutter Service in 1812 and took some part in the War of 1812 in the vicinity of New London, Connecticut, apparently as a part of the naval flotilla blockaded there by a British squadron. However, there is no evidence that she ever served as a Navy ship, and no documents that give the details of her operations have been found. See USRC Active (1812).
  • The USS Active (1837), was a schooner purchased in 1837 and sold in 1838.
