He commanded the first naval vessel owned by the United States and made the fust capture of an Eng.' lish ship In 1781, on his return from an errand to France, he encountered' two British ships, and the ensu-i ing battle was so Intense that defeat seemed certain Barry .was wounded, the color's". 1 were shot down,, all guns except one were . disabled. But Barry • refused to surrender. Manning the lone can- ron, suffering from his wounds, h£ fought hard until the enemy ships rah upSvhite flags; , After the war, Congress authorized construction of. a new; fleet, and Barry was put in com4' mand.
