Il est rare de rencontrer dans l'histoire de la navigation, un vaisseau qui a autant fait parler de lui. En effet, l'USS CONSTELLATION commence sa carrière en 1798 et se retire en 1955. Ses missions étaient variées; amarrer de nombreux vaisseaux, défendre les îles Hawaii de leur annexion par les Anglais en 1843, transporter des denrées alimentaires en Irlande pendant la grande famine entre 1845 et 1849. Ce fut également le premier bâtiment de guerre américain à se rendre en Chine en 1842 et transformé en navire école en 1871.

De nos jours, elle remet en mémoire de glorieux souvenirs à des dizaines de millieres de touristes qui la visitent chaque année à Baltimore.
