USS Queen Charlotte, a ship-rigged sloop built at Malden (now Amherstberg), Canada in 1807, for the Canadian Provincial Marine, was captured by Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry in the Battle of Lake Erie on 10 September 1813 and purchased by the United States Navy. Badly cut-up during the engagement, Queen Charlotte was taken to Put-in-Bay, Ohio and laid up until sold in 1825 to George Brown of Erie, Pennsylvania, who raised her and fitted her out as a merchant ship.
