Today In History.............

In 1797... The U.S.S. Constitution (Also know as Old Ironsides) was launched. This ship, one of  six, was built to help the fledgling U.S. Navy to both protect America's interest and to project force worldwide. She received her  nickname when in an engagement with the British, cannonballs bounced off of the heavy oak timbers she was made of.
