On September 5, 1813 off Monhegan Island on the coast of Maine, The American brig "Enterprise" commanded by 28 year old Lt. William Burrows engaged in battle with the British brig "Boxer" commanded by 29 year old Captain Samuel Blythe. Both ships fired broadsides at each other at close range before the badly damaged Boxer surrendered. Capt. Smyth was killed instantly and Lt. Burrows died from injuries during the encounter. Both men were buried with honors side by side in Portland's Eastern Cemetery.
