The USS Chesapeake was attacked twice by the British - in 1807 and 1813. In 1813 she was captured, sent to England and turned into a watermill.
She was attacked in 1807 because she refused to stop for HMS Leopard in order for the British to board her and search for British deserters (not to press-gang Americans into the Royal Navy, as many Americans still believe today).
In 1813 she was captured by HMS Shannon when captain Philip Broke was eager to engage and defeat one of the American frigates that had already scored a number of victories over the Royal Navy in single ship confrontations.
The Royal Navy took her into service as HMS Chesapeake, where she served until she was broken up and her timbers sold in 1820. They are now part of the Chesapeake Mill in Wickham, England.
Chesapeake Mill, a watermill in Wickham, not far from Portsmouth, in Hampshire, was designed and constructed in 1820 using the timbers of HMS Chesapeake, which had previously been the United States Navy frigate USS Chesapeake. The interior of the mill was designed around the dimensions of the deck beams. The mill remained in operation until 1976 and now serves as a retail centre for antique and gift sellers. It is a Grade II* listed building.
Even to this day many Americans wrongly believe that the British press-ganged Americans into the Royal Navy. But that's not the case. The vast majority of the so-called "Americans" they press-ganged into the Royal Navy were actually British citizens who were trying to pass themselves off as Americans by using forged identity documents. When the British boarded American ship they only took back British citizens who had deserted from the Royal Navy. But it still didn't stop the Americans using the "fact" that "The British are press-ganging American citizens into the Royal Navy" as one of their excuses to declare war on Britain and start the War of 1812, and even today many Americans and others believe the myth that the British went round stealing Americans citizens and press-ganged them into the Royal Navy.
