The HMS St. Lawrence was a wooden warship used in the war of 1812. The first Royal navy ship that participated in a line of battle formation. A 112-gun first-rate wooden warship that served on Canada's Lake Ontario during the War of 1812. In a campaign that had been dominated by sloops and frigates, gave the British uncontested control of the lake during the final months of the war. HMS St Lawrence never saw action, because her presence on the lake deterred the U.S. fleet from setting sail.
