Oops! Three Hours Late!

I can’t believe I neglected to post on this yesterday, which was the 208th birthday of the very naval sailing vessel that heads up this blog.

On 21 October 1797, the frigate U.S.S. Constitution, known also as Old Ironsides was launched at Edmund Hartt’s Shipyard in Boston Harbor.

Let’s hoist a pint in her honor.
