Historic Footnote for though:The War of 1812 was a fundamental turning point in Canada's history. Its history—including that of theLeda-class frigate, HMSShannon—has become important chapters in the narrative of Canada's evolution from colony to sovereign nation. The two-dollar coin featuring HMSShannoncommemorates the historic 11-minute battle with USSChesapeakeoff the coast of Boston. The capture of theChesapeakemarked a decisive naval victory for the British at a time when morale was waning. The British Navy was thought to be the most powerful in the world. But after five surprising defeats at the hands of the US Navy, it was feared morale was weakening. Aboard HMSShannon, Captain Philip Broke was eager to secure a victory and had implemented a rigorous training schedule for his crew. The US frigate sailed to meet theShannonon June 1, 1813. The battle lasted only 11 minutes, but was a decisive victory that helped bolster confidence in the British Navy. HMSShannonescorted USSChesapeakeinto the Halifax harbour on June 6, 1813
