GALLERY: The Eagle joins in celebrating the 4th in Boston Harbor
Boston — Side by side in the mouth of Boston Harbor, "America's Tall Ship" and the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat each fired 21 ceremonial shots in honor of the nation's birthday Wednesday.
Capt. Eric C. Jones, commanding officer of the Eagle, said it's "tough to get more poignant" than having the Eagle and the USS Constitution in Boston Harbor, on July 4th, celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence and commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 for Boston's Operation Sail.
