The American Sailing Navy chronicles the stories, ships, and sailors of the U.S. Navy from its earliest beginnings when the wind was the only source of energy to power these ships. Much of our history and language has its roots in these wooden ships as we expanded America's influence from the original 13 colonies.

The American Sailing Navy is an excellent addition to your vintage Navy collection or home library.


The American Sailing Navy is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the cover, and the previous owner's name stamped on the inside page.

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
