Uniforms of the United States Navy, 1800-1808 by CdreJohnPaulJones Uniforms of the United States Navy, 1800-1808 by CdreJohnPaulJones
Uniforms of the United States Navy, 1800-1808

The uniforms seen here are those adopted at the turn of the 19th century. As such, these are the uniforms that were seen aboard USS Constitution and Philadelphia during the Barbary Wars. Note that during this period, Lieutenants who were given command of a ship that didn't warrant a full Captain would switch their single epaulette to the opposite shoulder. It became common practice to call them "Lieutenant, Commanding." The uniforms are, from top to bottom, left to right:
Line Officers
- Midshipman
- Sailing Master
- Lieutenant
- Captain
Staff Officers
- Purser
- Surgeon
- Surgeon's Mate
- Chaplain (No Uniform Prescribed; Clerical Attire Shown)
United States Marine Corps
- Private
- Corporal
- Sergeant
- Captain

For all you Leathernecks out there, these are the uniforms that were worn to the shores of Tripoli.

The surgeon looks awfully like the Imperial uniforms, don't you think?

I to, shall take the responsability of forking your surgeon! I've got a question, does the USN also rank surgeons "physician, and surgeon" not just surgeon?

Aye, Sharpe's Rifles, eh?

I like these, but still favor the Revolution's uniforms. :)

yeah i like the chevrosn on the revolutionary ones - but these are pretty nice too

the rifles were great!!! they were the equivalent of napoleons tirailleurs - skirmishing troops - they went ahead of the army in battle sniping and harrassing the front - they also were great fro rear guard actions
