Synopsis: "Fight 'til she sinks, boys. Don't give up the ship! Burn her."
James Lawrence's command, spoken as his final fighting words in the historic 1813 battle between the USS Chesapeake and the HMS Shannon, would endure as the motto of the U.S. Navy. He lost the battle, however, and a large portion of the Chesapeake was recycled by the ship breakers of Portsmouth, England, until her timbers gave form and size to a new water mill in the village of Wickham. Almost two hundred years later, the old mill sat derelict, an eyesore. What was it made of ? Where had it come from? Why should it be preserved? It was then that the sails of a long-forgotten fighting ship were seemingly unfurled along the Meon River in the County of Hampshire, and the old navy frigate--having crossed the waters of America, Canada and England--set off on the third century of her enduring journey.

About the Author: Chris Dickon is an Emmy-winning former public radio and television producer with extensive broadcast experience in local and international history documentary in Europe, the Mideast, Japan, and the Caribbean. His work has been broadcast statewide in Virginia, on PBS stations and National Public Radio nationwide, and internationally on the Voice of America. As a writer he has published three books within the last year: on the histories of the Eastern Shore Railroad, the Chesapeake Bay Passenger Steamers, and the College of William and Mary.
