A Museum Quality Art Print of The Constitution and the Guierriere by Thomas Chambers. The artist finished this oil on canvas in the year 1845. The original size is 24 by 31 inches and now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This incident happened on August 19, 1812 during the War of 1812 between the British and the United States. The USS Constitution fought three major engagements during the War of 1812 with this being the most famous. Captain Isaac Hull was the Captain of this ship with a crew of 476 sailors. It was during this battle that a British sailor saw a British shot bounce off the Constitution's hull to which he yelled "her sides are made of iron", thus was the origination of her famous nickname "Old Ironsides". During this battle after a few short minutes, the Constitution shot off the Guirriere's masts and she then plunged into the sea.
