Did You Know?
The phrase emblazoned on Perry’s flag, “Dont give up the ship” were not Perry’s words, but the dying utterance of U.S. Captain James Lawrence. Lawrence, a good friend of Perry, was killed commanding the U.S.S. Chesapeake in an action with the British ship H.M.S. Shannon on June 1, 1813.
