The USS Constitution, which was first launched in 1797, will be tugged from its berth in Boston Harbor on Sunday into the harbor. It will then set out to open seas for a 10-minute cruise. The short trip marks the day two centuries ago when the Constitution bested the British frigate HMS Guerriere in a fierce battle during the War of 1812. It follows a three-year restoration project and is the first time the Constitution has been to sea on its own since its 200th birthday in 1997.

USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat.  Originally launched October 21, 1797, the USS Constitution was built at a time when wooden ships had a service life of ten to fifteen years; however, when the Navy made known plans to scrap her, public outcry saved "Old Ironsides," as she was affectionately called. Now serving as a museum, she takes one "cruise" yearly for demonstrations and to dock her on the opposite side to maintain even weathering. 2011
