Indiana Wood to be Used to repair "Old Ironsides"

Wood from white oak trees harvested in Indiana will be used to repair the world's oldest commissioned warship that is still afloat.

The oak matches the original construction material on the Boston-based U.S.S. Constitution, known as Old Ironsides.

The ship was built in 1797 and still has some of its original planks.
