The USS Constitution took its first trip in three years Friday to celebrate the 220th anniversary of its launch, the Associated Press reports.
The trip from the Charlestown Navy Yard to Fort Independence on Castle Island also celebrated the Navy’s 242nd birthday, which was on October 13.
“Old Ironsides” fired off a 21-gun salute near the fort and a 17-gun salute by the U.S. Coast Guard station on the four-hour jaunt, according to The Boston Globe.
On Saturday, the USS Constitution Museum is hosting a birthday celebration at the Charlestown Navy Yard from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a ceremony at noon to mark the ship’s launch.
