The inspiring words "Don't Give Up The Ship" were spoken by Captain James Lawrence as he lay dying on his ship in battle with the British during the Revolutionary War. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry later adopted the slogan for his own ship, the USS Lawrence. Later, under a different ship, Commodore Perry defeated the entire British squadron.
