USS CONSTITUTION Revolutionary War Print as it leaves Boston Harbor by John Stobart This scene is of the "Constitution" in Boston Harbor in her days of glory. She is shown making preparations to sail at ebb tide. Boston's Court House, Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall can be seen left of center as a brig arrives on the flood. Alongside the frigate a sloop unloads provisions as the gaskets are loosed from the royal sails, readying them for instant use.
Rhode Island designated the replica of the Continental sailing vessel "Providence" as the state flagship and tall ship ambassador in 1992. The original Continental (12-gun) sloop Providence was commanded by John Paul Jones during the American Revolutionary War .
