On Friday, October 13, 1775, meeting in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress voted to fit out two sailing vessels and to send them out on a cruise of three months to intercept transports carrying munitions and stores to the British army in America. This was the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew and as such constitutes the birth certificate of the U. S. Navy.
