    USS Constitution is shipshape at 220

    March 27, 2017 - On this day in 1794, the U.S. Congress passed The Naval Act of 1794. The law authorized construction of six frigates for the U.S. Navy. The USS Constitution was one of the six. She launched in 1797 and is still commissioned. She is the oldest U.S. Navy ship still afloat. Technically, she's not really afloat. Since 2015, she's been in dry dock in Boston being restored.
