1854 John Paul Jones - Gleason



John Paul Jones

In Honor of the Birthday of Paul Jones, Born July 6, 1747
John Paul Jones (born John Paul; July 6, 1747 - July 18, 1792) was the United States' first well-known naval commander in the American Revolutionary War. He made many friends and enemies - who accused him of piracy - among America's political elites, and his actions in British waters during the Revolution earned him an international reputation which persists to this day. As such, he is sometimes referred to as the Father of the American Navy (a sobriquet he shares with John Barry and John Adams).
