USS Constitution was the most celebrated ship in US history; the USS Constitution was launched in 1797.
Constitution was built at Edmund Hartt`s shipyard in Boston, Massachusetts from the resilient lumber of 2,000 live oak trees (specifically Souther live oak) cut and milled at Gascoigne Bluff in St. Simmons, Georgia. Constitution`s planks were up to seven inches (178 mm) thick. The ship`s design was also unique for its time because of a diagonal cross-bracing of the ship`s skeleton that contributed considerably to the ship`s structural strength. Armed, Constitution first put to sea July 22, 1798 and saw her first service patrolling the southeast coast of the United States during the Quasi-War with France. During her service in the conflict, Constitution`s sailors and Marines took part in the amphibious operation against Puerto Plata, Santo Domingo wherein the French privateer Sandwich was cut out and guns from the local Spanish fort were spiked.
