- On 22 June 1807, while trying to force the return of deserting seamen, the British ship Leopard fired on and seized the United States frigate Chesapeake. Governor Williams H. Cabell ordered the militia in eastern Virginia into service to defend the state against and anticipated invasion. Tensions over the incident soon eased and the militia were discharged on 15 July. Although the crisis was over in less than a month many citizens still were trying to settle their accounts as late as 1812.
- The United States Congress declared war against Great Britain on 18 June 1812 in response to British impressment of American seamen, violation of American neutrality, and blockade of American ports. The British responded by blockading the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and raiding coastal settlements. In June 1813 the British attempted to capture Norfolk but were repulsed by militia stationed on Craney Island. Although actual encounters were few, the threat of attack kept militia in the field throughout the war, which ended when the Treaty of Ghent was signed on 24 December 1814.
