Looking Back At 240 Years Of The U.S. Navy


The U.S. Navy offers a video that looks back at 240 years of the American naval service.

240 years ago, a group of rebels, calling themselves the Continental Congress, did the unthinkable. They approved the formation of a navy. A navy that in less than five years would help topple the mightiest empire the world had ever seen.

You can watch the video via the below link:
