C355 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812
Issue Date: August 19, 2012
On August 19, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued a stunning new souvenir sheet commemorating the 200th
Anniversary of the War of 1812 and the "Old Ironsides" naval battle. The USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned vessel in the U.S. Navy and the world, nearly as old as the document for
which George Washington and the U.S. Congress named her. The 202-foot, 2,200-ton warship, bristling with 44 cannon, slipped down the ways in Boston Harbor on October 21, 1797. During the War of
1812 she gained renown for her victory over HMS Guerriere, elevating the United States to the rank of a first-class world power. According to legend, the ship earned the nickname "Old Ironsides"
when a crew member, observing shot bouncing off her oak hull, sang out, "Her sides are made of iron!" The Constitution and her sister ships were, in fact, the stealth weapons of their era: the
largest, fastest and best protected frigates afloat.
