“Old Ironsides” in War and Peace
“This is really wonderful. It really brings it all together, like a big puzzle piece.”
Ironsides in War and Peace chronicles USS Constitution’s long and storied career, from the ship’s early beginnings in the fledgling United States Navy, to her fame earned in the War of 1812, to her continued preservation as an active, commissioned warship.
A curated collection of artifacts, archival records, paintings, and photographs from the Museum’s core collection illustrate Constitution‘s fascinating career in both war and peace, and bring together the many stories that make “Old Ironsides” America’s Ship of State.
Exhibit open during regular Museum hours.
