The Battle of Machias (June 1112, 1775) was the first naval engagement of the American Revolutionary War, [6][7] also known as the Battle of the Margaretta, fought around the port of Machias, Maine. Following the outbreak of the war, British authorities enlisted Loyalist merchant Ichabod Jones to supply the troops who were under the Siege of Boston. Two of his merchant ships arrived in Machias on June 2, 1775, accompanied by the British armed sloop HMS Margaretta (sometimes also spelled Margueritta or Marguerite), commanded by Midshipman James Moore.

The townspeople of Machias disapproved of Jones' intentions and arrested him. They also tried to arrest Moore, but he escaped through the harbor. After a short confrontation, Moore was fatally wounded, and his vessel and crew were captured.
