Isaac Chauncey
Birth: Feb. 20, 1777
Death: Jan. 27, 1840

War of 1812 United States Naval Officer. Served in the Barbary Wars before rising to prominence in the War of 1812. Under his direction, the United States Naval forces on Lake Ontario became a powerful fighting force. Despite its participation in successful raids, however, the fleet was used main as troop transportation, much to Commodore Chauncey's ire. This disappointment contributed to his lack of support for General Jacob Brown's unsuccessful Autumn 1814 campaign against Montreal. He later served as commander of the New York Navy Yard from 1825 to 1832. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
