Captain Lawrence, standing conspicuously in full-dress uniform on deck, had seen the midshipmen serving alongside him killed instantly. He was already nursing a pistol ball in the leg when he received his fatal wound from the enemy’s swivel gun in their maintop. It was here that he gave, repeatedly, his famous command, “Don’t give up the ship. Fight her till she sinks” and “Tell them to fire faster, don’t give up the ship.” Once helped below, lying on the surgeon’s table and informed of the British sailors boarding above, he then called out, “Then blow her up! Blow the ship up!” - New York Historical Society Museum & Library
