At the beginning of the 19th century, some free Black men from the northeastern United States, struggling to make their way in a highly discriminatory American society, went to sea in the merchant marine and the U.S. Navy, including aboard USS Constitution.

Interesting. Has the Navy done a study of it's relationship with the institution of slavery, as many colleges and universities have done? It would be interesting to read how enslaved people in shipyards may have contributed to the building of ships, or how high-ranking naval officers may have had enslaved people in their households.

USS Constitution Museum do you have an artist credit for the painting? It's amazing

On October 17, 2014, the Dropkick Murphys performed "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" on the main hatch aboard USS Constitution during the ship's 217th birthday underway in Boston Harbor 🎤 You can watch the full performance on USS Constitution's YouTube Channel: bit.ly/3bhUZNZ ... See MoreSee Less

The best turn around!

I was there for that too - it was awesome!

I was watching this from Lo Presti Park and could still hear them loud and clear.

We were in the ship and watched. They were awesome!

Wish they could do this again 😭
