See the ship that gave the US Navy its start. Launched in 1797, she’s still officially commissioned and on display at the Charlestown Navy Yard.

“Old Ironsides” was one of the first ships commissioned by the US Navy. She no longer fires her cannons in battle, but she will spark your imagination on this 45-minute tour. You’ll also have the option to disembark at the Charlestown Navy Yard for a tour of the famous ship and accompanying Naval Museum. Other highlights of the tour include the Bunker Hill Monument, the site of The Boston Tea Party, and the Old North Church.

If you choose to tour the USS Constitution*, USS Cassin Young or visit the USS Constitution Museum, you may return on any later cruise leaving from the dock at the Charlestown Navy Yard every hour on the hour between 11:00AM and 5:00PM.

The USS Constitution is a ship in Empire: Total War . It is available with the Special Forces & Bonus Content DLC.

She is easily the equal of many smaller fourth rate ships of the line in terms of combat power as she carries 44 24-pounder guns; a normal frigate in another navy would carry 12-pounders at best. The Constitution is also strongly built and large, allowing her to withstand punishment from other frigates and still be able to outrun larger opposition.

Unlikely as it sounds, the United States sold off the ships of the Continental Navy after the Revolutionary War. This had unfortunate consequences because the Barbary pirates noticed that, if America was a new nation, American ships were no longer protected by any treaty signed with Britain. The USS Constitution was therefore intended to combat the pirates. Even more incredibly, once a treaty with the pirates had been signed, construction was suspended! Eventually, Congress agreed to fund the ship, and she was launched in 1797.

BOSTON -- The USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship still afloat, has returned to Boston's waters.

The undocking of "Old Ironsides" on Sunday marked the end of restoration work that started two years ago, officials said. A celebration was held at the USS Constitution Museum.

"She is the oldest warship afloat in the world. She is the oldest sailing vessel in the world that can sail under her own power and she is the beginning of the United States Navy," Margherita Desy, a historian at Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston, told CBS Boston .

"She is the oldest warship afloat in the world. She is the oldest sailing vessel in the world that can sail under her own power and she is the beginning of the United States Navy," Margherita Desy, a historian at Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston, told CBS Boston .

USS Constitution is a wooden, 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 commissioned naval vessel afloat. [1]

It was constructed in 1794. It was later launched in 1797, Constitution was one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third constructed. 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 .
