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.
