USS Constitution Sailors: History Comes Alive!
Main Library, Local History Room
USS Constitution, launched in 1797, 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 commissioned naval vessel.
Sailors come dressed in uniforms from the 1800's and provide educational interactions about USS CONSTITUTION'S history and current activities. These interpretive history presentations are nominally 45 minutes in length and include 'hands-on' artifacts. This event is free and open to all ages.
