I Have Just Begun to Fight, The story of John Paul Jones
Commander Edward Ellsberg

Captain of a merchant ship at the age of 21, John Paul Jones defeated the British Serapis. When his ship Bon Homme Richard was sinking and his enemy ordered his surrendered, he famously replied, “I have just begun to fight” – and he won. An inspirational character.
