James Lawrence (October 1, 1781 – June 4, 1813) was an American naval officer. During the War of 1812, he commanded USS Chesapeake in a single-ship action against HMS Shannon commanded by Philip Broke. He is probably best known today for his last words or «dying command» «Don’t give up the ship!», which is still a popular naval battle cry, and which was invoked by Oliver Hazard Perry’s personal battle flag, adopted to commemorate his dead friend.
