Su questo libro:


This book describes the consruction of the USS Constitution in 1798, the pivotal role it played in the War of 1812, and its years as a training ship for the US Naval Academy. It also describes more recent efforts to restore the ship and put it on display in Boston.

Dal risvolto interno: This is the story of the oldest war ship afloat in the world, the venerable frigate U.S.S. Constitution, the cornerstone of the nascent American navy created by an act of Congress in 1794. Having seen its first action against Barbary pirates in 1803-05, the ship went on to heroics during the War of 1812, during which it acquired the nickname "Old Ironsides" after a British sailor observed a cannon ball bouncing off its side. Later used as a training ship and for good will tours around the globe, the ship was ultimately brought to Boston and restored, where it remains today as a floating museum and enduring symbol of the Age of Sail. In Old Ironsides, Col. David Fitz-Enz tells the complete story of the ship, from its "breeched" birth to the ongoing restoration efforts that keep it active today.
