The Cockade of John Paul Jones
- By Heather Sheen
From Scottish Merchant to American Naval Captain
If there was one thing the fiery John Paul Jones was good at, it was getting into - and out of - trouble.
He was apprenticed to the sea trade at age 13, a normal starting age for that career. (Young apprentices were expected to continue their schooling on board the ship.)
But what wasn't normal was the fact that by age 21 he was captain of the ship. When the original captain and the mate of his ship died of yellow fever, John took charge and brought the ship safely back to port. In reward, the ship's owners confirmed him as captain and gave him part ownership.
