Historic Weekend

September 9 - September 11

Carronade at Perry's National Monument, Put-in-Bay

Annual commemoration of the Battle of Lake Erie at Put-in-Bay, Ohio. Each year on and around September 10, we celebrate the anniversary of Oliver Hazard Perry’s defeat of the British fleet in The Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813, and the enduring peace between the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. We want to continue the traditional celebrations built over the last 20+ years and expand them to include all of South Bass Island. Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial invites everyone to join in this annual celebration of history.  Perry’s Monument will have a Historical Living encampment with re-enactors, firing demonstrations and more through the weekend. Miller Ferry is a proud supporter and contributor to Historic Weekend.
