USS Constellation

The USS Constellation is located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and is currently a museum ship. This National Historic Landmark is the last navy ship from the Civil War Era . In July of 1999 the vessel underwent a 9 million dollar restoration. I can remember this ship from when I was a little seemed a lot bigger then it does now.

USS Constellation is the last all sail warship built by the U.S. Navy. She earned the name "the Yankee Racehorse " for her cruising abilities. The ship is rumored to be haunted by sailors that lost their lives on board.
