The U.S. Navy is the largest in the world; its battle fleet tonnage is greater than that of the next 13 largest navies combined. The U.S. Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 11 in service and one under construction.

The Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established during the American Revolutionary and 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". http://www.founderspatriots.org/images/battle001.jpg

History : 

History Navy, United States, dates its existence from 13 October 1775, when the Continental Congress voted to purchase a small number of warships in defense In the course of the War of Independence, the Continental Navy operated more than fifty warships, including thirteen frigates Congress ordered built. In October 1781, combined American and French land and sea forces finally compelled the surrender of British Lord Cornwallis and his army at Yorktown, Virginia. American independence followed this decisive victory.

Slide 6: 

Congress passed the Naval Act of 1794 ordering the construction and manning of six frigates, to end most pirate activity off the Barbary Coast. In the twentieth century American blue-water navy capability was demonstrated by the 1907–1909 world tour of the Great White Fleet. Since 1945 the United States has defined its national interests even more broadly and attempted to head off or confront threats. http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/g490000/g495711.jpg
