This ship was commanded by the Father of the American Navy, John Paul Jones and captured many English ships during the Revolutionary War. Captain Jones led a daring raid on the British port of Whitehaven, 23 April, spiking the guns of the fortress, and burning the ships in the harbor. He then planned to seize the Earl of Selkirk at St. Mary's Isle Scotland and hold him as a hostage to obtain better treatment for American prisoners of war. However, since the Earl was absent, the plan failed. They fought with the HMS Drake where 2 Americans (one being Sam Wallingford) and 40 British were killed.
