To Catch A Thief: Constellation Fights the Slave Trade Tour

Constellation's proudest service may have occurred during the three years immediately before the Civil War when, as flagship of the navy's African Squadron, she led this nation's fight against the trans-Atlantic trafficking of slaves.  Tour and hands-on activities combine to bring into view Constellation's active career combating the slave trade and her exciting pursuit and capture of the slave ship Cora from which she rescued 705 captive Africans.   This presentation is open to all visitors and is included with regular admission. No reservations are required.
