The Commodore Perry is perhaps better called the Captain Lawrence or "Don't Give up the Ship" Flag. The legend it bears is based on what are alleged to be final words repeated by Captain James Lawrence after his severe injury at the hands of British frigate gunfire while aboard the USS Chesapeake battling the HMS Shannon on June 1, 1813. Commodore Perry learned of Captain Lawrence’s death and was distraught. He commanded that a brig be named Lawrence in honor of his dead friend. The ship now needed a battle flag and the parting words of Captain Lawrence were seen as ideal.
