Next Stop..The US Constitution

This was an incredible tour of this old battleship that was first used in the Revolutionary War. It is also know as "Old Iron Sides". Even though it was made of wood, it withstood many hits from cannons.

This is how the sailors slept....on hammocks...but since there were about 450 crew, they slept in 4 hour shifts.
