All Hands on Deck Video

In the companion video to "All Hands on Deck: Learning Adventures Aboard 'Old Ironsides,' Julie, as young visitor, has stepped aboard USS Constitution as part of the Ship's historic sail to celebrate 200 years as a commissioned naval warship. While on board, Julie sets off on her own voyage of discovery. Curious about the Ship, she goes below deck and meets several real people from the Ship's past-- Will Bryant, a young boy serving as a powder monkey; Jesse Williams, a Black sailor in the War of 1812; and Mrs. Maria Percival, wife of Captain John "Mad Jack" Percival, among others. Each tells their story to help Julie piece together the extraordinary legacyof USS Constitution.
