    Profiles the colorful history of the U.S.S. Constitution, "Old Ironsides," which won America's first victories at sea, and, following its historically accurate restoration in 1997, retains its status today as a national symbol. The video chronicles the ship's innovative design and construction, portrays some of its legendary sea battles (including a successful assault against two British ships simultaneously), and shows her recent restoration and re-launching, with a specially-trained U.S. Navy crew, for the first time in over a century.
