Celebrate July 4th
Celebrate Independence Day with a new virtual tradition!
America’s Ship of State, USS Constitution, and the USS Constitution Museum are bringing fun virtual content to your July 4th celebration. From a live 21-gun salute aboard “Old Ironsides” to firing an Alka-Seltzer® cannon in your own yard, there is something for all ages in this online event.
Programming on July 4th will be streamed live from USS Constitution‘s Facebook page. Programs will include a special Ship tour with Carl Herzog, the Museum’s Public Historian and host of Historian at Home, and a public trivia contest. Start studying now for your chance to win one of the 21 saluting battery rounds fired from USS Constitution!
Our mission is to engage all ages in the story of “Old Ironsides” to spark excitement about maritime heritage, naval service, and the American experience. Your support is essential to achieving our mission.
