The USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat. She was launched in 1797 from Boston, Massachusetts and participated in the the Quasi War with France (1798-1801), the Barbary Wars (1801-1805) and the War of 1812. She received her nickname of "Old Ironsides" when during a battle with the HMS Guerriere during the War of 1812, a sailor exclaimed, "Her sides are made of iron!” after he saw 18-lb. iron cannonballs bouncing off her 25-inch hull.
