    "The flame that lit the battle's wreck
    Shone round him o'er the dead."

    Very relevant.

    According to the University of Pennsylvania site, "Young Casabianca, a boy about thirteen years old, son of the admiral of the Orient, remained at his post (in the Battle of the Nile), after the ship had taken fire, and all the guns had been abandoned; and perished in the explosion of the vessel, when the flames had reached the powder."
