U.S. NAVY WAS FOUNDED ON THIS DAY IN 1775

The U.S. Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which
was established during the
American Revolutionary War and
was effectively disbanded as a separate entity shortly thereafter.

After suffering significant loss of goods and personnel at the
hands of the
Barbary pirates from Algiers, the U.S. Congress
passed the
Naval Act of 1794 for the construction of six heavy
frigates, the first ships of the U.S. Navy.

Door To Door Fuller Brush Man Keeps Selling | Here & Now

The company began with door-to-door sales of brushes of various
