USS Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, having been launched in 1797. In The Adventures of Old Ironsides, we dramatize two of her most exciting adventures.

In The Barbary Pirates, the year is 1805, and Constitution battles Tripolitan Pirates to free the crew of the captured USS Philadelphia. An “edge of your seat” adventure, it is based totally on fact with nothing thrown in for dramatic effect—it didn’t need it!

In Escape to the Wind, Constitution finds herself in the War of 1812 being chased by a squadron of five British Warships. The wind dies down, the ships are dead in the water, and Captain Hull finds a way to distance himself from the superior force. An amazing but true story of Yankee ingenuity! By culling through the records of the Captain’s logs, the Colonial Radio Theatre brings to life the adventures of the USS Constitution—Old Ironsides!
