Grenades of this type played an important part in the biggest naval battle of the Revolutionary War. The Bon Homme Richard under the command of Captain John Paul Jones entered into a battle with the British ship the Serapis. The Serapis was a much faster and heavier ship. As the battle continued, the two ships ended up side by side. Jones relied on the eighteen-pound large cannons in the gun room. As six of the cannons were discharged, two of the fired guns burst.
