“Old Ironsides” has been a source of pride for Massachusetts for well over 200 years. Launched in 1797, just six years after the founding of the MHS, the War of 1812 icon and the Society have been sharing stories for centuries. Naval historian Margherita M. Desy will describe some of the hidden treasures uncovered in the recent restoration of the Constitution and highlight resources at MHS that help tell the story of the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat.
