Dean Mosher's painting of Oliver Hazard Perry

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.
