The historic USS Constellation literally towers over the Inner Harbor viewers. Built in 1854, the imposing war ship is built to perfection. Ironically, the official date of the ship's completion is August 16, 1854; August 16 is the Birthday of the Ancient Free Moorish Rite. As for the Constellation being put to sea, she made her maiden voyage ten days later on August 26th. Interesting, uh?
