The yacht America, later...

The yacht America shown still looking sleek and fast about twenty years after her famous trip to England when she brought the America's cup to America.
She had an eventful life, a race boat in England for a time, fought on both sides during the civil war and was being used as a training vessel when this picture was taken. Is that the Constitution in the background?
 Below, under sail in 1901, just before she was put under cover for twenty years.
