Captain Oliver Hazard Perry, U.S.N. Part 2
This US ensign, 15 stars and 15 stripes, is possibly that of the Adams, destroyed by the British, 3rd September 1814 during a raid into Maine. Even if not that of the Adams, it is of the pattern used at the time, the number of stripes used being reduced to 13 in 1818
Below is Captain Perry on 10 September 1813, at the battle of Put-in-Bay (or battle of Lake Erie) being pulled across to receive the surrender of a British brig. Note the 11 stripes and ? stars.
