Perry's Monument & Peace Memorial

The site of day three of my 1812 class was lovely Put-in-Bay, Ohio. This is the location of one of the biggest victories of the war of 1812, the Battle of Lake Erie.  The monument honors Oliver Hazard Perry's victory as well as our peace with Canada since.

What fun exploring the environs of South Bass Island with colleagues and a bonus guest, mom.
