In preparation for the turnaround cruise of USS Constitution in October 2014, two active duty sailors wearing nineteenth century uniforms (costumes) demonstrate for tourists what service in the Navy would have been like in the early 1800’s.  They work as a team to pull the large mooring line from the pier to allow the ship to get underway.
