The Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a separate entity shortly thereafter. The United States Constitution provided the legal basis for a military force by giving Congress the power "to provide and maintain a navy". For more information, see Wikipedia: United_States_Navy.

This category represent the basic US Navy ships. They will have links to the corresponding page on Wikipedia for more information about each class of ship, or the individual ship. A free space page can be created on WikiTree if more information about the ship needs to be added that goes beyond what should be placed on a category page. For more information on classes of ships, see US Navy Ships Resources.

People who served on one of these ships during peacetime should have the default category added to their profile.
