1794-1797: The CONSTITUTION was built by Colonnel George Claghorn at Edmond Hartt's shipyard in Boston. Made from more than 1,500 trees. Armed with cannons cast in Rhode Island copper; fastening's provided by Paul Revere. Launched on October 21, 1797. The USS CONSTITUTION won every battle she ever fought - over 40 of them! She earned her nick name 'Old Ironsides' after a sailor saw a cannonball bounce off her hull. Resting in Boston Harbor, she is the oldest commissioned warship in the world.
