Crew Profiles

Discover the stories of the individuals who served on USS Constitution during the War of 1812.

 

Building on the research of Commander Tyrone G. Martin, and with information gathered from genealogical and government records kept in archives and libraries around the United States, the USS Constitution Museum has developed a growing database of information on USS Constitution‘s crew. If you served aboard, or have information about an ancestor who sailed on “Old Ironsides,” we invite you to send your story to curatorial@usscm.org.

 

Note: In most instances the rank or rate given is the highest position the individual achieved during his time on the ship. The spellings of names sometimes vary considerably from document to document, and this list represents the most common variants.
