Don't give up the ship
Infamous Words  flown on the USS Lawrence flag , Revolutionary War battleship

” Let’s look at a simple piece of fabric flying from the mast of the USS Lawrence 202 years ago on Sept. 10, 1813. On that flag waved the battle cry of the Lake Erie squadron: Dont Give Up The Ship.”

The original “Dont Give Up The Ship” flag is on display under low-light conditions at the U.S. Naval Academy Museum.  To read more click here
