VIDEO: Old Ironsides Celebrates 215 Years

The USS Constitution was tugged in to Boston Harbor to fire off her cannons.

The USS Constitution was tugged into Boston Harbor to celebrate the anniversary of its October 1797 launch.

Tugboats pulled Old Ironsides out to Castle Island, where she fired off thunderous shots as the HMS Dauntless and many spectators looked on. 

Enjoy the video and the photos of the gun salute. It was wicked windy, so the video doesn't do the sound of the cannons much justice.

Gee it might have been nice if the Patch had done a write-up prior to this event happening by way of notifying the public. Also when writing articles it might be useful to note the date and time the event happened! This on-line publication has gone down hill fast since Matt and Kristy left. Can this publication get a useful editor that actually covers town event is a timely, responsible, and real journalistic way!!???
