History of the Mercury Russian Brig 1820

The Russian 20 gun brig Mercury was laid down in Sevastopol on January 28, 1819. She was designed as a patrol ship to guard the Northern Caucasus coast. Built of Crimean oak, with a shallow draught and equipped with oars, the Mercury was launched on 7 May 1820 and broken up on November 9, 1857.

The Mercury fought in many important naval battles during her career; the most notable being a battle between the Mercury (commanded by lieutenant A. Ka-zarsky) and two other brigs against a whole fleet of fourteen Turkish ships, who were returning from the shores of Anatolia. The Turkish fleet were in no doubt who would be the victors in this mis-matched battle, but they did not take into account the sheer heroism and determination of the smaller Russian fleet, The Mercury was able to escape after a final and very powerful assault by the three brigs, ending the conflict. Mercury is one of the most famous vessels of the Russian Navy.
