"USS Constitution" is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the World.  She was launched from the shipyard of Edmund Hartt, in Boston, on Oct. 21st, 1797. At 204' overall length she is the last surviving U.S. built frigate.  This veteran of the War of 1812, nicknamed "Old Ironsides" was the first American Warship to circumnavigate the World in 1844.

In 1882 she was removed from active service.  In time for her centennial, "Old Ironsides" was brought back to Boston in 1897.  Refitted for display and opened to the public in 1905 she became a national monument.
