Old Ironsides

Boston, MA, United States

When we visited Boston, Massachusetts last fall, we decided to take the Hop on Hop off bus tour and one of the stops was at the Charlestown Navy yard, which is home to the famous Old Ironsides. What a pleasure it was for us to be able to actually walk on board and take a tour. I remember learning about how the ship was constructed. They used 21 inch thick white oak from Georgia. During the war of 1812 this mighty ship was easily able to withstand the cannon ball fire from the British, they simply bounced off Old Ironsides!
