Description: Johnston Blakeley (October 1781 - October 1814) was an officer in the United States Navy during the Quasi-War with France and the War of 1812. After service in President during the Quasi-War with France and command of Enterprise early in the War of 1812, Master Commandant Blakeley was appointed to command of the newly built sloop-of-war Wasp. In 1814, he made a very successful cruise which included the capture of HMS Reindeer. Wasp was last heard of 9 October 1814 and is believed to have foundered in a gale. Blakeley received the thanks of Thanks of Congress, a gold medal, and posthumous advancement to Captain for his last cruise.
