Neighborhood Photo: USS Constitution Celebrates U.S. Navy’s Birthday

The USS Constitution celebrated the U.S. Navy’s 243rd birthday on Friday, October 19. The ship traveled from the Charlestown Navy Yard to Fort Independence on Castle Island where she fired a 21-gun salute. The USS Constitution then returned to the Navy Yard, firing an additional 17-gun salute as she passed the U.S. Coast Guard Station, formerly the Edmund Hartt Shipyard where the Constitution was built.
