Two British frigates - Galatea and Perseus - chased the recently-captured Patriot vessel Union into Charlestown harbor. In their haste to get away from the British the Patriot vessel ran aground and was abandoned by her crew when they saw British long boats approaching them. The British set the merchant vessel on fire and then put back to sea.
