This pamphlet by a "Yankee farmer" was penned by John Lowell, a notable member of the Federalist Party. The Chesapeake Affair of 1807 was a naval skirmish between the British warship HMS Leopard and the American frigate USS Chesapeake. The British ship launched an attack against and boarded the Chesapeake, allegedly in search of British deserters. The affair fanned the flames of British-American tensions and eventually led to President Thomas Jefferson's Embargo of 1807. Both the Chesapeake Affair and the Embargo are viewed as precipitating events to the War of 1812. (Wikipedia).
