John Barry, an Irish immigrant to Philadelphia in 1760, commenced a naval career that included being victorious in thirty naval engagements verses the British. Captain Barry was credited with the first capture of a British warship. He was wounded in a ferocious sea battle, quelled three mutinies and captured over twenty ships during his career. He fought the last naval battle of the Revolutionary War. Commodore John Barry was the First Flag Officer of the United States Navy and Father of the American Navy. The historical fiction of John Barry's life is fun, informative, emotional, and adventurous.
