The Bonhomme Richard

Hitchcock Signature Series Ship Chair - The Bonhomme Richard
The Bonhomme Richard gained her fame under the captaincy of John Paul Jones in the Battle of Flamborough Head. An extended gunnery battle with the HMS Serapis had rendered the Bonhomme Richard seemingly unable to continue the battle, , when British calls for the surrender of Captain Jones led him to utter the now famous words "Sir, I have not yet begun to fight!" While the Bonhomme Richard was abandoned due to catastrophic damage during the battle, the subsequent American victory played a significant part in the French decision to back American independence.
