Perfect for history buffs & sailors alike… DON’T GIVE UP THE SHIP is the famous last order given from Naval officer James Lawrence as he commanded the Chesapeake against the British in Boston Harbor in 1813.

If ever there was a time to hold onto these words – now seems good… and we think Jimmy would agree.
