|Laid Down:||January 1776|

On June 22 of 1807, the HMS Leopard intercepted the USS Chesapeake and boarded. This event caused repercussions throughout the United States, which led to the American declaration of war against United Kingdom.
On January 8 of 1808, the Chesapeake got its revenge, when it "snuck up" on the Leopard, when it was preparing to land troops on the shores Nova Scotia. The magazine exploded, incinerating the stern portion of the ship, the captain, and most of the commanding officers. The few crew members that were able to escape into the water were picked up by the Chesapeake.
