History:

The HMS Terror was constructed in 1813 for the Royal Navy as a specialised warship and a newly developed bomb vessel. She participated in several battles of the War of 1812, such as the Battle of Baltimore with the bombardment of Fort McHenry. It was at this battle where the "Star-Spangled Banner" was written by Francis Scott Key, which later became the American national anthem. Two decades later she was converted into a polar exploration ship and participated in several expeditions. These include George Back's Arctic expedition of 1836–1837, the Ross expedition of 1839 to 1843, and Sir John Franklin's ill-fated attempt to force the Northwest Passage in 1845, during which she was lost with all hands along with HMS Erebus.

On 12 September 2016, the Arctic Research Foundation announced that the wreck of Terror had been found in Nunavut's Terror Bay, off the southwest coast of King William Island. The wreck was discovered 92 km (57 mi) south of the location where the ship was reported abandoned, and some 50 km (31 mi) from the wreck of HMS Erebus, discovered in 2014.
