New from Skipjack in celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. Skipjack's new "Don't Give Up the Ship" T-shirt with graphic artwork on back designed after a Bellamy carved eagle and in celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 with the famous quote by Captain James Lawrence. The front is non-pocketed and features the Skipjack Nautical Wares logo. Available in three colors; patriot red, navy blue and driftwood grey. Men's sizes medium through 2XL. Skipjack's Nautical Apparel.

Tradition has it that Captain James Lawrence said these heroic words after being mortally wounded in the engagement between his ship, the U.S. frigate Chesapeake, and HMS Shannon on 1 June 1813. As the wounded Lawrence was carried below, he ordered "Tell the men to fire faster! Don't give up the ship!"

Although Chesapeake was forced to surrender, Captain Lawrence's words lived on as a rallying cry during the war. Oliver Hazard Perry honored his dead friend Lawrence when he had the motto sewn onto the private battle flag flown during the Battle of Lake Erie, 10 September 1813.
