I am so proud of you Jackson!! You are an amazing builder and it was so amazing to watch your creation come together each day. I cannot wait to see what you create next. Thank you so much for such a fun, engaging activity for the kids USS Constitution Museum!

Interesting. Has the Navy done a study of it's relationship with the institution of slavery, as many colleges and universities have done?

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