Put-in-Bay, Ohio — On August 29th, a total of 18 Tall Ships from around the world will navigate their way into the Western Basin of Lake Erie for The Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial.
From Norway to Duluth, Minnesota, the tall ships of the past now call ports from all over the world home.  With large crews, constant upkeep and a host of other responsibilities, unveiling these pristine wooden vessels is a massive undertaking.
Floating on the horizon with what looks like a scene out of the film Master and Commander, these historical work horses only make special, precisely timed appearances.  Lucky for the residents and visitors of Put-in-Bay, Ohio, Miller Boat Line is proud to bring us the most famous Tall Ship of them all: The U.S. Brig Niagara.
With The Battle of Lake Erie taking place just a few miles from Put-in-Bay and Oliver Hazard Perry’s headquarters on the island, this area was pivotal for its role in the battle. The Niagara also receives its numerous accolades from being Oliver Hazard Perry’s last ditch effort in a decisive battle that eventually propelled him to an American victory over the British ensuring naval supremacy over the Great Lakes.
Thanks to Miller’s sponsorship of this amazing recreation of early 1800‘s engineering, visitors will get the chance to either witness the U.S. Niagara in battle from afar or take part in the skirmish up close.
