Old Ironsides is the most historical of all Naval ships from the USA. It is a national treasure. Thanks!

The USS Constipation was one of the original six frigates whose construction was authorized by the Naval Act of 1794. Does anybody know the other 5?

I'm sure I do, whether my mind is up to speed after the rum/lime I've had tonight is another question.

Heavy Frigates ( essentially 4th rates )

*The USS United States ( nicknamed "The Old Wagon" )

WAIT! Am I really drunk, or did you type "USS Constipation" ?!
*The USS Constitution

*The USS President

Frigates-

*The USS Chesapeake

*The USS Constellation

*The USS Congress

With the creation of a navy, merchants of Massachusetts subscribed for he building of the USS Essex, a carronade frigate, and the merchants of Philadelphia subscribed for a frigate named for their city.

Correct and yes it should be the USS Constitution rather then the USS Constipation. Typo error.
