Cornerstones of Freedom: The Story of Old Ironsides (Hardback)

"The Constitution's thick oak planks protected its sides, and many British cannon balls bounced off them. When one of the American seamen saw this he shouted, 'Hurrah! Her sides are made of iron!' Soon other sailors took up the cheer, and after that sailors called her Old Ironsides." — Norman Richards, Author
