Named for the famed U.S Naval commander of the U.S.S Chesapeake, the Captain Lawrence tee celebrates the battle cry of U.S Navy in the War of 1812.
The story goes, while the crew aboard the Chesapeake engaged in close combat with the British frigate H.M.S Shannon, Cpt. Lawrence, with a bullet wound to his leg, yelled from the gun deck to his crew, "Don't give up the ship! Fight her till she sinks! Fire faster! Don't give up the ship!"
