About the Vessel
USS Constitution is one of the most famous ships in the history of the United States. She was launched on 21st October 1797 and the ship is still active in service. The USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled and three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy. American president George Washington named this ship after the Constitution of the United States of America. Historians believe that the ship is one of the oldest commissioned naval vessels afloat in the world.
Manufactured in the Massachusetts at Edmund Hartt's shipyard, renowned builder Edmund Hartt's Shipyard built this ship. In her early days, she was responsible for providing protection to the American merchant shipping. It was the time of Quasi-War with France. She also assisted in defeating the Barbary pirates in the First Barbary War.
USS Constitution is most recognised for her performances during the War of 1812, which was fought against the United Kingdom. In this war, she captured a number of merchant's vessels and defeated five British warships. These battleships were HMS Guerriere, Java, Pictou, Cyane, and Levant. She also participated in the Guerriere battle that earned her the nickname of "Old Ironsides." The love and admiration of public have frequently saved her from scrapping.
USS Constitution also served as a training ship for the Naval Academy of the United States during the American Civil War. In May 2015, she went for a three-year restoration program.
