Ready, Aim…

There’s so much I didn’t know about Ohio. Lake Erie was an integral location in the War of 1812.

Oliver Hazard Perry managed to defeat the British on the lake, saying, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”

There is a great museum on Put In Bay that covers the history of the Battle of Lake Erie. They also have some reenactors. This man was demonstrating the workings and orders given to rifleman of that time. I just wish that there wasn’t a light pole and people in modern clothes behind him.
