I have not yet begun to fight! ~John Paul Jones, captain, USS Bonhomme Richard.
On September 23, 1779, at about 6 o'clock in the evening, the Bonhomme Richard, under the command of Jones, met the HMS Serapis in what would become known as the Battle of Flamborough Head. In a pitched battle lasting about four hours, in which both ships eventually ended up along side one another firing broadsides as fast as the crews could reload the cannon, Captain Richard Pearson, HMS Serapis, commanding, yelled over to Jones, not being able to see clearly through the smoke, "Has your ship struck?!" To which Captain Jones replied, "I have not yet begun to fight!" Eventually, the HMS Serapis struck its colours (flag); about thirty-six hours after the engagement began, the USS Bonhomme Richard, battered by the ferocious battle, sank--but not before the crew was able to transfer over to the captured Serapis.
The American victory was important, not just because Jones was taking the fight to the British--the battle took place off the shores of Great Britain itself--but because it was one of the factors that convinced the French to support the American colonies in the fight for independence. #johnpauljones#johnpaul#ihavenotyetbeguntofight#bonhommerichard#serapis#flamboroughhead#1779#americanrevolution#americanrevolutionarywar#unitedstatesnavy#usnavy#usnavalhistory#ushistory

“Each of you, my young friends, will find in life some personal ‘Westerplatte.’ Some measure of tasks that have to be undertaken and fulfilled. Some rightful cause for which one cannot avoid fighting. Some duty, or necessity, which one cannot shun. From which one cannot desert. Finally, some order of truth and values, with must be held and defended...” (Meeting with youth,, Gdansk, 1987)
