The Capture of USS Chesapeake, or the Battle of Boston Harbor, was fought on 1 June 1813,

between the Royal Navy's frigate HMS Shannon and American frigate USS Chesapeake, as part of

the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain. The Chesapeake was captured in a

brief but intense action in which over 80 men were killed. This was the only frigate action of the

war in which there was no mass of force on either side.
