Image related to USS Constitution about c.1931, Constitution Crew Furling the Main Sail

USS Constitution was outfitted with 36 sails of her 48 sails for the National Cruise. The ship did not sail under her own power, however, due to scheduling and time constraints; she was towed by the minesweeper USS Grebe for most of the trip. Constitution sailors did demonstrate sail handling at the dockside when the ship visited the different ports on the three coasts.
