This drawing of the USS Constitution is now on display at the National Archives building Rotunda Gallery. Having it on view all of August is fitting at this time of sunny days at the shore. This 1817 sail drawing by Charles Ware shows the elaborate sails needed to power the ship. The drawing is from Record Group 19-4-43. ARC 5956232

Cool!
