U.S. Naval history got a shot in the arm when the USS Constitution, “Old Ironsides,” which had been sitting in dry-dock since it was a training vessel for the Academy during the War Between the States, was directed to be restored by an act of Congress on March 4, 1925. When she was refurbished, the ship that has been afloat longer than any ship in history sailed all three coasts of the United States, dropping anchor in 90 ports. You can see a wooden model of Old Ironsides in person at the USNA Museum. #navy #militaryhistory #history #navyhistory
