USS Constitution

USS Constitution ("Old Ironsides") in Boston Harbour, Massachusetts. Nicknamed when cannon balls bounced off her oak planking, Old Ironsides was undefeated in 40 historic battles. The ship, built in Boston in 1797, is still a US Navy ship and a living museum of Naval History. Every Year on the 4th of July, with decorative flags flying and her gun booming. The Constitution is towed out into the harbour and turned around to permit even weathering at her permanent dock in Charlestown.
