5) Don’t tread on me. On this day, in 1775, the Continental Congress creates a Continental Navy, naming Esek Hopkins, Esq., as the fleet’s commander-in-chief. Four captains were named to the fledgling service: Dudley Saltonstall, Abraham Whipple, Nicholas Biddles and John Burrows Hopkins, and their respective vessels, the Alfred, Columbus, Andrew Doria and Cabot became the Navy’s first ships. Five first lieutenants, including John Paul Jones, future American hero, were also commissioned.
