Naval Lessons from the American Revolution

What the Attendees Will Learn:

Four naval lessons were valid in 1775 and are more so today.


When the Continental Navy came into existence in 1775, the Royal Navy had 350+ rated ships with 20 guns or more and another 150 smaller ones. At the time, the Royal Navy was the most experienced, best trained, equipped and led Navy in the world. Overwhelmed and outnumbered as it was, the Continental Navy supported by privateers gave a credible account of itself. And, as a result, there are four naval lessons learned from the American Revolution that were true when the war ended in 1783 and are still valid today, almost 240 years later. In this presentation, Marc provides insight to the trials and tribulations that plagued the Continental Navy as well as what it accomplished in its nine years of existence.
