This garden, like the adjacent street, bears the name of Captain Isaac Hull (1773-1843), commander of the U.S.S. Constitution during the War of 1812. On August 19, 1812, his ship destroyed the British frigate H.M.S. Guerriére in a naval battle now considered one of America’s greatest naval victories. Captain Hull became a hero and the U.S.S. Constitution earned the famed nickname “Old Ironsides.”
Born in Shelton, Connecticut, Isaac Hull became a cabin boy on a merchant ship at the age of 14. He enlisted in the United States Navy, ascending to the rank of 4th lieutenant by 25. After having captured a French privateer in the Tripolitan War (1801-1805), Hull received a promotion to the rank of captain in 1806. He became commander of the Constitution four years later.
