= THE STORY OF THE SHANNON AND
THE CHESAPEAKE IN 1812.

Guns Off Cape Ann-the story of the Shannon
and the Chesapeake. A blow-by-blow account
of the brief but bloody encounter between
His Britannic Majesty's frigate SHANNON,
commanded by Captain Philip Broke, the best
captain in the British North American Squadron,
and Captain James Lawrence in command of the
United States frigate CHESAPEAKE. This took
place in June, 1813, off Cape Ann, north of
Massachusetts Bay, during the British
American War. Both ships hammered each
other until, after fifteen minutes, the American
ship struck her colours and Britain had a
much needed victory after a series of
reverses inflicted by the Americans.
