US Navy Motto Don't Give Up The Ship Belt

Write a Review

A CBO exclusive,  a nod to the United States Naval battle cry, " Don't give up the ship" uttered by a wounded Captain James Lawrence, Commander of the  American frigate Chesapeake during the War of 1812 still lives on today. Inspired by the motto Captain Oliver Perry flew a blue battle flag bearing Captain Lawerence's dying words aboard the Niagra during his victory over the British on Lake Erie.

This exclusive design celebrates the motto with the battle flag and both vessels, The Chesapeake and Niagra as they represent the origin of the battle cry.
