"Old Ironsides" herself, docked for you to see and explore. For me, this was the perfect finish to the freedom trail. Every evening, they fire a cannon to signal the Colors and lower the United States of America Flag to retire it for the evening. Done by the Navy, this was performed with exactness and pride. As a deep rooted patriot and armed forces veteran, this was even a little emotional as I place my hand over my heart and pondered the cost many revolutionaries were so willing to accept in pursuit of their vision of a new independent nation. This boat is the oldest commissioned naval vessel and over 200 years old. Even though this ship was not used until the War of 1812, it still finds a perfect home with the revolutionary events that occurred 50 years before. What a wonderful piece of history!
