On 27 March, 1794 Congress authorized the construction of 6 frigates for the U.S. Navy. The frigates were: United States, Constellation, Constitution, Chesapeake, Congress, and President.

In March of 2011 I got the opportunity to go to the Sparrows Point Dry Docks and check out the restoration of the Constellation and the Torsk. The vessels were in for routine maintenance, repairing wood and metal, and probably some new paint. It was a dreary day with rain off and on so the photos aren’t great but it was a once in a lifetime experience.
