Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Blue Jackets of 76: A History of the Naval Battles of the American Revolution; Together With a Narrative of the War With Tripoli This combat is the earliest action upon American waters of which we have any trustworthy records. The only naval event antedating this was the expedition from virginia, under Capt. Samuel Argal, against the little French settlement Of San Sauveur. Indeed, had it not been for the pirates and the neighboring French settlements, there would be little in the early history of the American Colonies to attract the lover of naval history. But about 1645 the buccaneers began to commit depre dations on the high seas, and it became necessary for the Colonies to take steps for the protection Of their commerce. In this year an eighteen gun Ship from Cambridge, Mass, fell in with a Barbary pirate of twenty guns, and was hard put to it to escape. And, as the seventeenth century drew near its close, these pests of the sea SO increased, that evil was sure to befall the peaceful merchantman that put to sea with out due preparation for a fight or two with the sea robbers.
