The USS Constitution Model Ship commemorates one of the oldest commissioned naval vessels still afloat today, the well-known American warship that earned the nickname Old Ironsides and stands today as a symbol of naval prowess. Designed to resemble the original ship as closely as possible, this model has the same basic body structure as the USS Constitution, and it features lined sails that are authentically rigged. The model is built from scratch with quality woods, including birch, cherry, rosewood, and maple. It features realistic lifeboats, cloth sails, and metal anchors. The USS Constitution Model Ship is a beautiful piece of American history and serves perfectly to add a touch of Naval pride and American history to any room of your home.

A Brief History of the USS Constitution

The Constitution was built in Massachusetts from the lumber of 2,000 live oak trees. The design was unique for its time because of a diagonal cross-bracing of the skeleton that contributed considerably to the structural strength. Paul Revere forged the copper spikes and bolts that held the planks in place and the copper sheathing that protected the hull. Armed, Constitution first put to sea July 22, 1798 and saw her first service patrolling the southeast coast of the United States during the Quasi-War with France.

By early 1812, relations with the United Kingdom had deteriorated and the Navy began preparing for war. Captain Isaac Hull put to sea July 12, without orders, to prevent being blockaded in port. He encountered a force of five British ships, which he eluded temporarily, despite the Constitution having no wind in the sails. Captain Hull and the Constitution met up with one of their British pursuers one month later, the HMS Guerriere. The Constitution damaged the HMS Guerriere so severely that it was not worth towing to port. This battle earned the ship its nickname Old Ironsides.

Present day, the USS Constitution is berthed at Pier 1 of the former Charlestown Navy Yard at one end of Bostons Freedom Trail. She is open to the public year round, though a visit to Old Ironsides is subject to Navy provisions and the fact that she occasionally puts out to sea.
