Ship for sale!?! What compelled a Boston businessman to write the Secretary of the Navy with an offer to purchase "Old Ironsides" in 1905? Our public historian Carl Herzog explains how this Armenian immigrant saw USS Constitution as a source of patriotic pride and a symbol of American freedom worth saving!

Today, at 3:00 p.m. ET, Charlestown Navy Yard will pause to commemorate Memorial Day by participating in Taps Across America. We invite you to join us - Boston National Historical Park, USS Constitution, and the Museum - to honor our nation’s veterans and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the United States of America.

At 3:00 p.m. in their respective locations and time zones, thousands of buglers from around the country will play “Taps” to acknowledge those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Observers are asked to remain silent during this time of remembrance. If you are unable to be with us at the Navy Yard, we encourage you to pause and remember the fallen with this video.
