USS Brandywine (1825) (formerly named Susquehanna) was a wooden-hulled, three-masted Frigate of the United States Navy bearing 44 guns which had the initial task of conveying the Marquis de Lafayette back to France. She was later recommissioned a number of times for service in various theatres, such as in the Mediterranean, in China and in the South Atlantic Ocean,

During several instances she served as a role player in American gunboat diplomacy, a role she was well suited for with her large long-range 32-pounder guns and her devastating short-range carronades which produced severe fragmentation and fire damage to the ship fired upon, as well as widespread splinter and shrapnel injury to its crew.
