[Excerpts from Preface]This Register of officers and ships of the Navy during the years 1801 through 1807 will supplement the operational material in Naval Documents related to the United States Wars with, the Barbary Powers, six volumes of which have already been published. The additional data on personnel and ships should be of value not only to historians but also to geneologists, artists, model builders, and naval architects.Part I, Personnel, endeavors to list all the commissioned, warrant, and acting officers both of the Navy and Marine Corps during the years 1801 through 1807, stating the various duty assignments of each. All the material is from official sources, but there may be omissions because of incomplete records and failure to report some changes of duty and appointments at distant stations? Part II, Ships? Data, has been compiled from many sources, all contemporary and authentic, but much about our early naval vessels was not known even in the Navy Department when the vessels were still in existence. ? The plans of vessels reproduced in this volume are all taken from originals in the National Archives or Library of Congress
