USS Constitution, Charlestown Naval Yard, USS Cassin Young
Built in 1797, the USS Constitution is located at the Charlestown Naval Yard. It is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat and received the nickname “Old Ironsides” when cannonballs bounced off her tough oak planking. Also located at this historic naval yard is the USS Cassin Young, which survived two kamikaze attacks during World War II.
Bunker Hill Monument
The Bunker Hill Monument was erected between 1827 and 1843 to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first major conflict between British and Patriot forces in the Revolutionary War, fought there June 17, 1775. The Bunker Hill Monument is not actually on Bunker Hill but instead on Breed’s Hill, where most of the fighting in the misnamed Battle of Bunker Hill really took place.
