U.S.S. Constitution To Be Moved
The USS Constitution will take a trip in Boston Harbor to mark the anniversary of its October 1797 launching. The ship will be tugged by Fort Independence on Castle Island today. Berthed in Charlestown, the ship is known as the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat. It earned its nickname “Old Ironsides” after winning a battle against the British during the War of 1812.
