The Daybook: Volume 16, Issue 3-USS Chesapeake Captured

The next issue of The Daybook is currently online at In this issue, we cover the capture of Hampton Roads' own frigate USS Chesapeake by the frigate HMS Shannon.  We also look at the local operations of the United States Revenue Cutter Service during the War of 1812.   Further, the Museum Sage makes a plea to rescue the phrase "Don't Give Up the Ship!" from misuse.
