Perry's early career saw him assigned to several ships, including the {{USS|President|1800|6}} (where he served as an aid to Commodore [[John Rodgers (1772–1838)]]) which had been in a victorious engagement over a [[United Kingdom|British]] vessel, {{HMS|Little Belt|1807|6}}, shortly before the [[War of 1812]] was officially declared. He continued in this capacity during the [[War of 1812]]. Perry was also aboard the ''President'' when it engaged {{HMS|Belvidera|1809|6}} when Rodgers himself fired the first shot of the war at this vessel with a following shot that resulted in a cannon bursting, wounding Rodgers and Perry and killing and wounding others.<ref>[[#Griffis|Griffis, 1887]] p.40</ref> Perry transferred to the {{USS|United States|1797|6}}, and saw little fighting in the war after that, since the ship was trapped in port at [[New London, Connecticut]]. Following the signing of the [[Treaty of Ghent]] which ended the conflict, he served on various vessels in the [[Mediterranean]]. Perry served under Commodore [[William Bainbridge]] during the [[Second Barbary War]]. He then served in African waters aboard [[HMS Cyane (1806)|USS ''Cyane'']] during its patrol off [[Liberia]] from 1819-1820. After that cruise, Perry was sent to suppress [[piracy]] and the [[slave trade]] in the [[West Indies]]. Later during this period, while in port in [[Russia]], Perry was offered a commission in the [[Imperial Russian Navy]], which he declined.
