"The Battle of Lake Erie; The Bicentennial at Put in Bay"

On September 10, 1813, American ships engaged British vessels near the Lake Erie islands in what would become the most important strategic battle over control of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. It didn't look good for the Americans at first: after his flagship Lawrence was heavily damaged by British cannons, 28-year-old Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry took a small rowboat through heavy fighting to the Niagara. From this new flagship, he was able to break through the British lines and force them to surrender. A short dispatch to Major General William Henry Harrison simply bore the now famous words "We have met the enemy, and they are ours." Perry's victory in the Battle of Lake Erie the first military campaign he led during the war - allowed the American fleet to take control of Lake Erie and capture Detroit. It also ensured an American victory in the Battle of the Thames in October 1813, which resulted in the death of Shawnee leader Tecumseh, the ultimate defeat of British and American Indian forces, and the end of the War of 1812 two years later.

"The Battle of Lake Erie; The Bicentennial at Put in Bay" OSU Library

On September 10, 1813, nine American ships engaged six British vessels near the Lake Erie islands in what would become the most important strategic battle over control of Lake Erie. It didn't look good for the Americans at first: after his flagship Lawrence was heavily damaged by British cannons, 28-year old Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry took a small rowboat through heavy fighting to the Niagara. From this new flagship, he was able to break through the British lines and force them to surrender. A short dispatch to Major General William Henry Harrison simply bore the now-famous words We have met the enemy, and they are ours.The Battle of Lake Erie marked the first time in history that an entire British naval squadron had ever surrendered, with all six ships successfully captured. Perry's victory the first military campaign he led during the War of 1812 - allowed the American fleet to take control of Lake Erie, break American Indian support lines to the British, and capture Detroit. Control of that city also ensured an American victory in the Battle of the Thames near Chatham-Kent, Ontario, in October 1813. The encounter resulted in the death of Shawnee leader Tecumseh, the destruction of the American Indian coalition that supported the British, the ultimate defeat of British and American Indian forces, and the end of the War of 1812 two years later.
