1985

Launched at Presque Isle in the spring of 1813, the schooner Scorpion was commanded by Sailing Master Stephen Champlin during the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813. She carried a crew of 35 and was armed with two 32-pounders. The Scorpion fired the first and last shots of the battle, capturing two British schooners at the close of action. In September 1814 while on blockade duty, the Scorpion and Tigress were captured by the British. Renamed HMS Confiance, she served in the Royal Navy for the remainder of the war and was dismantled at Colborne Basin, Ontario.
