Constitution arrived in Boston on 27 July and remained there just long enough to replenish her supplies. Hull sailed without orders on 2 August to avoid being blockaded in port, [90] heading on a northeast route towards the British shipping lanes near Halifax and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Constitution captured three British merchantmen, which Hull burned rather than risk taking them back to an American port. He then ordered a full double-loaded broadside of grape and round shot which took out Guerriere ' s mizzenmast.

This left only Guerriere ' s bow guns capable of effective fire. Hull's cabin caught fire from the shots, but it was quickly extinguished. With the ships locked together, both captains ordered boarding parties into action, but the sea was heavy and neither party was able to board the opposing ship.

At one point, the two ships rotated together counter-clockwise, with Constitution continuing to fire broadsides. When the two ships pulled apart, the force of the bowsprit's extraction sent shock waves through Guerriere ' s rigging. Her foremast collapsed, and that brought the mainmast down shortly afterward. Hull had surprised the British with his heavier broadsides and his ship's sailing ability. Adding to their astonishment, many of the British shots had rebounded harmlessly off Constitution ' s hull.

An American sailor reportedly exclaimed "Huzzah! The battle left Guerriere so badly damaged that she was not worth towing to port, and Hull ordered her to be burned the next morning, after transferring the British prisoners onto Constitution.

William Bainbridge, senior to Hull, took command of "Old Ironsides" on 8 September and prepared her for another mission in British shipping lanes near Brazil, sailing with Hornet on 27 October. Constitution sailed offshore in search of prizes, leaving Hornet to await the departure of Bonne Citoyenne. At the initial hail from Bainbridge, Java answered with a broadside that severely damaged Constitution ' s rigging. She was able to recover, however, and returned a series of broadsides to Java.

A shot from Java destroyed Constitution ' s helm wheel , so Bainbridge directed the crew to steer her manually using the tiller for the remainder of the engagement.

Java ' s bowsprit became entangled in Constitution ' s rigging, as in the battle with Guerriere , allowing Bainbridge to continue raking her with broadsides. Java ' s foremast collapsed, sending her fighting top crashing down through two decks below. Bainbridge drew off to make emergency repairs and re-approached Java an hour later. She lay in shambles, an unmanageable wreck with a badly wounded crew, and she surrendered. Bainbridge ordered Constitution to sail for Boston on 5 January, [] being far away from a friendly port and needing extensive repairs, leaving Hornet behind to continue waiting for Bonne Citoyenne in the hopes that she would leave the harbor she did not.

Bainbridge determined that Constitution required new spar deck planking and beams, masts, sails, and rigging, as well as replacement of her copper bottom.

However, personnel and supplies were being diverted to the Great Lakes , causing shortages that kept her in Boston intermittently with her sister ships Chesapeake , Congress , and President for the majority of the year. Her mainmast split off the coast of Bermuda on 27 March, requiring immediate repair. Stewart ordered drinking water and food to be cast overboard to lighten her load and gain speed, trusting that her mainmast would hold together long enough for her to make her way into Marblehead, Massachusetts.

Upon Constitution ' s arrival in the harbor, the citizens of Marblehead rallied in support, assembling what cannons they possessed at Fort Sewall, and the British called off the pursuit.

Constitution had left Boston not fully supplied, but Lord Nelson ' s stores supplied a Christmas dinner for the crew. Constitution was cruising off Cape Finisterre on 8 February when Stewart learned that the Treaty of Ghent had been signed. On 20 February, Constitution sighted the small British ships Cyane and Levant sailing in company and gave chase.

He concentrated fire on Cyane , which soon struck her colors. Constitution had suffered little damage in the battle, though it was later discovered that she had twelve pound British cannonballs embedded in her hull, none of which had penetrated. The next morning, Collier's squadron was spotted on a course for the harbor, and Stewart ordered all ships to sail immediately; [] he had been unaware until then of Collier's pursuit.

Collier's squadron was distracted with Levant while Constitution made another escape from overwhelming forces. He then set course for New York and arrived home on 15 May to large celebrations. Charlestown Navy Yard's commandant Isaac Hull directed a refitting of Constitution to prepare her for duty with the Mediterranean Squadron in April They removed Joshua Humphreys' diagonal riders to make room for two iron freshwater tanks, and they replaced the copper sheathing and timbers below the waterline.

The paddle wheels were designed to propel her at up to 3 knots 5. Jones had them removed and stowed in the cargo hold before he departed on 13 May for a three-year tour of duty in the Mediterranean. Constitution experienced an uneventful tour, sailing in company with Ontario and Nonsuch , until crew behavior during shore leave gave Jones a reputation as a commodore who was lax in discipline.

The Navy grew weary of receiving complaints about the crews' antics while in port and ordered Jones to return. Constitution arrived in Boston on 31 May , and Jones was relieved of command. With discipline restored, Constitution resumed uneventful duty. Macdonough resigned his command for health reasons on 9 October By August, she had put into Port Mahon, suffering decay of her spar deck, and she remained there until temporary repairs were completed in March Constitution returned to Boston on 4 July and was placed in reserve.

Constitution was built in an era when a ship's expected service life was 10 to 15 years. Secretary Branch approved the costs, and Constitution began a leisurely repair period while awaiting completion of the dry dock then under construction at the yard.

On 24 June , Constitution entered dry dock. Captain Jesse Elliott , the new commander of the Navy yard, oversaw her reconstruction.

This was the first of many times that souvenirs were made from her old planking; Isaac Hull ordered walking canes, picture frames, and even a phaeton that was presented to President Andrew Jackson. Meanwhile, Elliot directed the installation of a new figurehead of President Jackson under the bowsprit, which became a subject of much controversy due to Jackson's political unpopularity in Boston at the time.

Rumors circulated about the citizens of Boston storming the navy yard to remove the figurehead themselves. A merchant captain named Samuel Dewey accepted a small wager as to whether he could complete the task of removal. Elliot was appointed captain of Constitution and got underway in March to New York, where he ordered repairs to the Jackson figurehead, avoiding a second round of controversy. She arrived on 10 April and began the return voyage on 16 May. She arrived back in Boston on 23 June, then sailed on 19 August to take her station as flagship in the Mediterranean, arriving at Port Mahon on 19 September.

Her duty over the next two years was uneventful as she and United States made routine patrols and diplomatic visits. Constitution arrived in Norfolk on 31 July. Elliot was later suspended from duty for transporting livestock on a Navy ship. As flagship of the Pacific Squadron under the command of Captain Daniel Turner , she began her next voyage on 1 March with the duty of patrolling the western coast of South America.

Departing Rio, she returned to Norfolk on 31 October. After spending months in port she put to sea for three weeks during December, then was again put in ordinary. In late , she was moored at Norfolk, serving as a receiving ship. Acting Secretary David Henshaw faced a dilemma. His budget could not support such a cost, yet he could not allow the country's favorite ship to deteriorate.

The captain traveled to Virginia and conducted his own survey of the ship's needs. On 6 November, Henshaw told Percival to proceed without delay, but stay within his projected figure. After several months of labor, Percival reported Constitution ready for "a two or even a three year cruise. Wise and his family, arriving at Rio de Janeiro on 2 August after making two port visits along the way.

She sailed again on 8 September, making port calls at Madagascar, Mozambique, and Zanzibar, and arriving at Sumatra on 1 January Many of her crew began to suffer from dysentery and fevers, causing several deaths, which led Percival to set course for Singapore, arriving there 8 February.

Chads had been the Lieutenant of Java when she surrendered to William Bainbridge 33 years earlier. He went ashore with a squad of Marines to speak with the local Mandarin. When no communication was forthcoming, he ordered the capture of three junks , which were brought to Constitution. He released the hostages after two days, attempting to show good faith towards the Mandarin, who had demanded their return. During a storm, the three junks escaped upriver; a detachment of Marines pursued and recaptured them.

He soon realized that no return would be made, however, and Percival ordered Constitution to depart on 26 May. She arrived at Canton, China on 20 June and spent the next six weeks there, while Percival made shore and diplomatic visits. Again the crew suffered from dysentery due to poor drinking water, resulting in three more deaths by the time that she reached Manila on 18 September, spending a week there preparing to enter the Pacific Ocean.

She found Commodore John D. Sloat and his flagship Savannah there; Sloat informed Percival that Constitution was needed in Mexico, as the United States was preparing for war after the Texas annexation. She sat at anchor for more than three months until she was finally allowed to sail for home on 22 April, rounding Cape Horn on 4 July. She arrived home in Boston on 27 September and was mothballed on 5 October. Constitution began a refitting in for duty with the Mediterranean Squadron.

The figurehead of Andrew Jackson that caused so much controversy 15 years earlier was replaced with another likeness of Jackson, this time without a top hat and with a more Napoleonic pose. Captain John Gwinn commanded her on this voyage, departing on 9 December and arriving at Tripoli on 19 January This was the first time that a Pope set foot on American territory or its equivalent. At Palermo on 1 September, Captain Gwinn died of chronic gastritis and was buried near Lazaretto on the 9th.

Captain Thomas Conover assumed command on the 18th and resumed routine patrolling for the rest of the tour, heading home on 1 December She was involved in a severe collision with the English brig Confidence , cutting her in half, which sank with the loss of her captain. The surviving crew members were carried back to America, where Constitution was put in ordinary once again, this time at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in January Constitution was recommissioned on 22 December under the command of John Rudd.

She carried Commodore Isaac Mayo for duty with the African Squadron , departing the yard on 2 March on a leisurely sail towards Africa and arriving there on 18 June. Mayo made a diplomatic visit in Liberia, arranging a treaty between the Gbarbo and the Grebo tribes.

Mayo resorted to firing cannons into the village of the Gbarbo in order to get them to agree to the treaty. About 22 June , he arranged another peace treaty between the leaders of Grahway and Half Cavally. Constitution took the American ship H. Gambrill as a prize near Angola on 3 November. Gambrill was involved in the slave trade and proved to be Constitution's final capture. She was diverted to Havana, Cuba , arriving there on 16 May and departing on the 24th.

She arrived at Portsmouth Navy Yard and was decommissioned on 14 June, ending her last duty on the front lines. Since the formation of the US Naval Academy in , there had been a growing need for quarters in which to house the students Midshipmen. In , Constitution was moved to dry dock at the Portsmouth Navy Yard for conversion into a training ship. Some of the earliest known photographs of her were taken during this refitting, which added classrooms on her spar and gun decks and reduced her armament to only 16 guns.

Her rating was changed to a "2nd rate ship. At the outbreak of the Civil War in April , Constitution was ordered to relocate farther north after threats had been made against her by Confederate sympathizers.

Cuyler towed her to New York City, where she arrived on 29 April. Her sister ship United States was abandoned by the Union and then captured by Confederate forces at the Gosport Shipyard, leaving Constitution the only remaining frigate of the original six.

The Navy launched an ironclad on 10 May as part of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, and they bestowed on her the name New Ironsides to honor Constitution ' s tradition of service.

However, New Ironsides ' s naval career was short, as she was destroyed by fire on 16 December During the voyage, she was allowed to drop her tow lines from the tug and continue alone under wind power.

Settling in again at the Academy, a series of upgrades was installed that included steam pipes and radiators to supply heat from shore, along with gas lighting. From June to August each year, she would depart with midshipmen for their summer training cruise and then return to operate for the rest of the year as a classroom.

In June , her last known plank owner William Bryant died in Maine. George Dewey assumed command in November and he served as her commanding officer until In , her condition had deteriorated to the point where she was retired as a training ship, and then towed to the Philadelphia Navy Yard where she was placed in ordinary on 26 September.

Constitution was overhauled beginning in in order to participate in the centennial celebrations of the United States. Work began slowly and was intermittently delayed by the transition of the Philadelphia Navy Yard to League Island.

By late , the Navy opened bids for an outside contractor to complete the work, and Constitution was moved to Wood, Dialogue, and Company in May , where a coal bin and a small boiler for heat were installed. The Andrew Jackson figurehead was removed at this time and given to the Naval Academy Museum where it remains today.

Badger took command on 9 January to prepare her for a voyage to the Paris Exposition of , transporting artwork and industrial displays to France. While docking at Le Havre, she collided with Ville de Paris , which resulted in Constitution entering dry dock for repairs and remaining in France for the rest of She got underway for the United States on 16 January , but poor navigation ran her aground the next day near Bollard Head.

She was towed into the Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, Hampshire, England, where only minor damage was found and repaired.
