Seized at Copenhagen by the British during the Napoleonic Wars, the HMS Little Belt became the focal point of an incident between the U.S. and Britain in 1811 when the USS President engaged and all but dismasted HMS Little Belt, 45 miles from the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. The USS President's agression was in response to HMS Guerrière impressing an American seaman.
