The first USS Argus, originally named USS Merrimack, was a brig in the United States Navy commissioned in 1803. Under the command of Master Commandant William Henry Allen, Argus broke out of New York Harbor on 18 June 1813, eluding the British blockade. The heavier British ship HMS Pelican intercepted Argus on the morning of August 14th 1813. A sharp fight commenced, during which Captain Allen was mortally wounded, and the American crew surrendered when the crew of the Pelican were about to board. Pelican and the captured Argus then sailed to Plymouth, England, where Allen died of his wounds a week after the battle. He was buried with full military honours. The rest of the crew, including sailing master Uriah P. Levy, were held as prisoners of war in Dartmoor, England for the duration of the war.
