Leave Them the Ashes of the President

In 1815, Midshipman George Hollins had just reported to
Commodore Stephen Decatur on board the USS President when the frigate was force to flee a squadron of British ships intent on her capture. The resulting engagement with HMS Endymion was one of the final sea battles of the War of 1812
