All right, so maybe I was getting a tad obscure with the War of 1812 :laugh:
Let's try something a tad simpler and move over to Europe.
What is the claim to fame of W. Sidney Smith?
If that is Admiral "Sir" William Sidney Smith then it's to do with the relief of the siege of Acre in September 1801 I think.

Yep, Admiral Smith was a key player in defending Acre, giving Napoleon his first ever setback on land.
