This is the illustrated life history of USS Constitution in a presentation by Naval Historian Margherita Desy. For nearly 150 of her 220-year career, "Old Ironsides" has called Boston her homeport and the two have become inextricably entwined. Desy will review the building of Constitution, the service of U.S. Navy sailors and Marines in the War of 1812 when she battled the Royal Navy, the largest navy in the western world, and the tremendous skill and effort that it takes to preserve a national icon!
