The Battle of Lake Erie
September 10, 1813


American.........................................British
O.H. Perry............Commander............R.H. Barclay
9...............Vessels...............6
54...............Guns...............63


1. The battle begins near this spot at 11:45 A.M. The British open fire when the fleets are approximately one mile apart.

2. Perry's flagship, the Lawrence, is disabled after suffering 80% casualties and having all its guns knocked out of action. Rather than surrender Perry transfers his flag to the Niagara and continues to fight.

3. The Niagara breaks through the British battle line and when heavy damage causes the two largest British ships to collide they are forced to surrender. After capturing their entire fleet Perry reports to General William Henry Harrison: "We have met the enemy and they are ours."
