This reference, indispensible for anyone researching the early U.S. Navy during the Quasi-War with France, the first Barbary War, and the War of 1812, lists all commissioned, warrant, and acting officers in the country's young sea services between 1801 and 1807. All of these listings are based on official Navy records. The data included for commissioned vessels during this period draws on a wider range of period and modern materials, but is no less definitive.
