A little history:

Built in Boston the USS Constitution is nearly as old as the document for which George Washington and Congress named her.

Her first mission during the late 1790's was to guard American commerce in the Caribbean. In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson sent her to the Mediterranean to protect American ships and seaman from attack by the Barbary pirates.

After returning to the United States she met and defeated HMS Guerriere, the first in a grand succession of victories in the War of 1812.

During the Civil War she was brought to Newport, Rhode Island to serve as a training ship for Naval Academy midshipmen.

USS Constitution was brought back to Boston in 1897. Refitted for display and opened to the public in 1905, she became a national monument.

In 1934 Constitution was returned to her place honor in the Boston Harbour at Charlestown Navy yard. She rests here today as an enduring symbol of the document for which she is named and of America's determination to defend the republic she so long protected.
