USS Constellation Orientation Video

block USS Constellation Museum

The USS Constellation embodies fascinating aspects of the military and maritime heritage of the Chesapeake. The new orientation film developed under this grant will be shown on a screen mounted on the outside of the museum's building, visible to millions of passersby annually in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Five to seven minutes long, it will provide a dynamic historical overview of the story of the last all-sail warship constructed by the U.S. Navy. Built in a Chesapeake shipyard in Norfolk, the Constellation served as the flagship of the nation's patrol against illegal slave traders in the 1850s and then operated during the Civil War as a training vessel for midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.

Amount Funded: $25,101.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
