Description:
On October 13, 1775, the United States Navy was established. The day is celebrated as the birth date of the American Navy.

The U.S. Navy traces its roots back to the privateers that were employed to attack British commerce in the early days of the revolution. On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established a naval force, hoping that a small fleet would be able to offset the uncontested exercise of British sea power.
