COMMODORE PERRY MINIATURE DESK FLAG, 4" X 6"

COMMODORE PERRY MINIATURE DESK FLAG, 4 X 6

Historicial reproductions of significance to the history of the United States in miniature desk form.  Dyed polyester with hemmed edges, mounted on 10"black staff with gold tip.

One of the better known historical Navy flags, this banner was flown by Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry at the legendary Battle of Lake Erie. The inspiring slogan comes from the last words of Captain James Lawrence, who spoke them as he lay dying on his ship in battle three months before. Commodore Perry’s flagship, the USS Lawrence, bore the Captains name and waved the flag with his words. Though the Lawrence was claimed in the fight, Commodore Perry brought this banner with him as he left the sinking ship, and raised it again on the USS Niagara. Under it, and against the odds, he defeated the entire British squadron, which had him outgunned.
