Now O Boy is starting to move on from the Hunley. While in SC, a volunteer at one of the sites he visited gave him this neat old poster featuring Old Ironsides (The USS Constitution):
So he quickly went to work on building a model of it out of Legos, paper, string and (of course) lots of tape). We printed off some excellent pictures of the ship from our favorite website, Google Images, to help him out. Of course now he thinks he should go visit this ship as well. I think we've set a terrible precedent with the trip to the Hunley.

Here is a video tour of the Old Ironsides Lego model (filming and narration provided by O Boy).
