Resistance

(Brig: a. 10 4-pars.)

The brig Resistance was carried on the accounts of Nathaniel Shaw, Jr. Naval Agent at New London, Conn., from April 1776 until November 1778. In December of 1777, while commanded by Capt. Samuel Chew, she put into Boston with a prize whose £7,000 cargo had been destined for the West Indies. Resistance, however, was captured by Lord Riehard Howe's Fleet the following year, 1778, and her name was struck from thc lists of the Continental Navy
