The US Navy turns 236 today!
Did you know the US Navy has their own history offices? And a dozen museums? And their own history conferences?
They’ve also got an excellent site at www.history.navy.mil, and all sorts of interesting sections on the site. Education, art, news, research and more in an easy to navigate format. They even have a YouTube channel! Here’s my favorite movie from there, “The War of Independence.” It’s a 1950s-era film about the origins of the Navy.
