1. St. Simons Island, Wikipedia entry. St. Simons Island is one of Georgia's renowned Golden Isles Saint Simons' next military contribution was due to the Naval Act of 1794, when timber harvested from two thousand Southern live oak trees from Gascoigne Bluff was used to build the USS Constitution and five other frigates (see Six original United States frigates). The USS Constitution is known as "Old Ironsides" for the way the cannonballs bounced off the hard live oak planking. (Submitted on October 6, 2008, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
