We end our pilgrimage on The Freedom Trail at the USS Constitution. Climb aboard this historic warship (called a frigate), where the masts loom high into the sky and the canons still look poised for battle. Before being docked at the harbor, the frigate traveled the West Indies (Caribbean), Brazil, and Africa. It fought in a war against pirates, where it earned a legendary reputation. Instead of being pierced by the cannon balls hurled against it, the heavy ammo bounced right off its sides. Our friend from earlier, Paul Revere, also had a hand in its construction as he smithed the copper fastenings. Now, the USS Constitution is a water-faring attraction that lends a peek into life at sea.
