USS Constitution museum acquires major collection of historic documents

The U.S.S. Constitution Museum has acquired more than 150 documents, including correspondence from President George Washington’s secretary of war and the leader of the Haitian Revolution, that shed light on the warship’s early years and the young United States' first international conflict.

The collection acquired at auction had been in private hands for more than 225 years and will be unveiled during a Facebook Live celebration of the ship’s 223rd birthday Wednesday.
