Note: Constitution spent the better part of 1882 in ordinary at New York Navy Yard, then was towed to Portsmouth Navy Yard, where she was outfitted as a barracks ship.  Whether she was placed in commission or “in service,” is unknown, as are the identities of those officers assigned to her there in the nearly fifteen years that followed.
