The first naval encounter was June 11 and 12 1775 in Machias Maine. One of my ancestors was in on the capture of the British ship HMS Margaretta, It was delivered to Boston to the rebels. I believe Paul Revere was one of the rebels to receive it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Machias you can search for info about my ancestor: Charles (The Patriot) Hutchins my great great great great grandfather. That's a lot of greats!

US Navy commissioned the sub USS Alligator in 1862. Like the USS Monitor, she sank while under tow off Cape Hatteras in 1863. The H L Hunley was operated by the CS Army, the CS Navy viewed it as a dishonorable way of fighting and refused to have anything to do with it.
