Capture of H.M. Ships Cyane & Levant | Lithograph by James Queen after a painting by Thomas Birch | 1815
The capture of HMS Cyane and HMS Levant was an action which took place at the end of the Anglo / US portion of the War of 1812. The two British warships HMS Cyane and HMS Levant fought USS Constitution on 20 February 1815, about 100 miles east of Madeira. Following exchanges of broadsides and musket fire, both Cyane and Levant surrendered. The war had actually finished a few days before the action with the ratification of the Treaty of Ghent by both sides, but the combatants were not aware of this.
