Seafaring Sunday: Old Ironsides Again

June 24, 1833:  USS Constitution enters drydock at Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston, MA, for overhaul. The ship was saved from scrapping after public support rallied to save the ship following publication of Oliver Wendell Holmes' poem, "Old Ironsides."

She is still a beautiful ship and a wonderful historical treasure, Pauline.
