History of the ship
USS Constitution, known as “Old Ironsides,” is a wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate of the United States Navy. Named after the United States Constitution, she is the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world (HMS Victory is older but is permanently in dry dock) and is still in service in the US Navy. The Constitution was one of the six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and was launched in 1798. Joshua Humphreys designed them to be the Navy’s capital ships and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed than the standard frigates of the period.
For a time, Constitution was assigned the hull classification symbol IX-21 (the “IX” hull code stands for “Unclassified Miscellaneous”) but was reclassified to “none” on 1 September 1975.
