The First Ship

According to The American Patriot's Almanac (by William Bennett and John T. E. Cribb), today is the anniversary of the acquisition of what would become the first ship in the United States Navy by the Continental Congress in 1775. In honor of the Alfred (the rechristened Black Prince), today we raise the First Navy Jack flag, still in use today during the War On Terror.
