On this day in 1775, George Washington directs Nicolson Broughton to take command of the first ship in Washington’s navy. The war had just started, and Washington was working to get his army supplied. One of his early solutions was to build up a small fleet of ships that could raid British supply vessels. These ships came to be known as Washington’s “Cruisers” or his “Navy.” The first ship was not so impressive! It was an armed fishing schooner, the Hannah. Washington gave orders that the Hannah was to take “such Vessels as may be found on the High seas or elsewhere, bound inward and outward to or from Boston in the Service of the ministerial Army.” Let’s just say that the Hannah was less than successful. In one encounter, it seized a ship called the Unity. But the Unity turned out to be an American ship! Obviously, the ship had to be returned, but some of the crew resisted and were arrested. They wanted prizes from the capture they thought they’d made. Another encounter was against the 16-gun ship the HMS Nautilus. In good news, the Nautilus was not an American ship. But in bad news, the Hannah was outmatched—it quickly fled. The schooner was run aground and would have been destroyed but for the resistance of Americans on land. After the Hannah, #GeorgeWashington commissioned other, new ships, which sailed under the Pine Tree flag (pictured). Altogether, Washington’s #Navy captured 55 prizes in about 6 months. They provided valuable supplies to American troops, then maintaining a siege of #Boston. The Continental Congress later acquired its first ship, the Alfred. Historians disagree on whether the Alfred or the Hannah was the first #USNavy vessel.
