REMINDER: WHAT IS THE U.S.S. CONSTELLATION? - The oldest sailing ship in existence that has been rebuilt. Well, we learned that the bottom two levels of the ship were pretty intact, but the top two decks had to be mostly rebuilt. The ship was originally built at the Sterrett Shipyard, Baltimore, Md., and launched on September 7, 1797.

BELOW DECKS - The third level had the hammocks where the crew slept, and they stretched from front to back of the ship. It was eerie looking!
WHAT IS A WARDROOM ?
In the back of the ship was the Wardroom. According to Wikipedia, the wardroom is the mess-cabin of naval commissioned officers above the rank of midshipman.
Around the perimeter of the Wardroom were bedrooms /cabins for all of the commanding officers and the chaplain.
LOTS OF GHOSTLY ENERGY IN THE WARDROOM -
Because I can sense ghosts and spirits- I can also sense areas where there was a LOT of emotional energy. I didn't know what room I was walking into when I entered the Wardroom.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? - It means that there was a lot of STRESS in the Wardroom. A lot of high emotional energy happened there. As I learned who resided in the room it made perfect sense. That's the room where all of the important decisions pertaining to the ship would usually happen! So, the commander's emotions left an "energy thumbprint" in the room that I sensed.

THE SURGEON'S ROOM AND GHOSTLY SICKNESS - This was located in the bow (front) of the ship. James said it felt claustrophobic, and I did NOT feel good in there. Obviously people were very ill - upstairs on deck 2, before I reached this deck I did get a feeling of flu-like symptoms and learned that there were outbreaks of Yellow Fever and Typhoid Fever. There were also a lot of bottles of medications on display.

That concludes our tour of the U.S.S. Constellation!
