USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the
United States Navy. Named by President George Washington after the Constitution
of the United States of America, she is the world's oldest floating commissioned
naval vessel.[Note 1] Launched in 1797, Constitution was one of six original
frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794. Joshua Humphreys
designed the frigates to be the young Navy's capital ships, and so Constitution
and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed and built than standard
frigates of the period. Built in Boston, Massachusetts at Edmund Hartt's
shipyard, her first duties with the newly formed United States Navy were to
provide protection for American merchant shipping during the Quasi-War with
France and to defeat the Barbary pirates in the First Barbary War. Constitution
is most famous for her actions during the War of 1812 against Great Britain,
when she captured numerous merchant ships and defeated five British warships:
HMS Guerriere, Java, Pictou, Cyane and Levant. The battle with Guerriere earned
her the nickname of "Old Ironsides" and public adoration that has repeatedly
saved her from scrapping. She continued to actively serve the nation as flagship
in the Mediterranean and African squadrons, and circled the world in the 1840s.
During the American Civil War she served as a training ship for the United
States Naval Academy and carried artwork and industrial displays to the Paris
Exposition of 1878. Retired from active service in 1881, she served as a
receiving ship until designated a museum ship in 1907. In 1931 she started a
three year 90-port tour of the nation, and in 1997 she finally sailed again
under her own power for her 200th birthday.
