Overview of USS Constitution Restorations (an authoritive paper)

This short paper summarises the restorations undergone by the historic frigate USS Constitution from 1803 (six years after her launch) to the present times. It was written by the Historian of the Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment in Boston. "Storms, battle, and accidents all contributed to the general deterioration of the ship, alongside the natural decay of her wooden structure, hemp rigging, and flax sails," the author points out.
