Centennial Activities for the Battle of Lake Erie Begin with Transfer of Command Ceremony in Cleveland

It was symbolic, but impressive none the less. On Thursday, August 30, the commander of the Brig Niagara, a direct descendent of Oliver Hazard Perry, was lowered onto a longboat with the “Don’t Give Up The Ship” flag draped over his shoulders (as has been depicted by historians) and was rowed by several Niagara crew members to board the USS DeWert, an Oliver Hazard Perry Class frigate docked in Cleveland Harbor.

It was an historic transfer of command from the direct descendants of the commander of the US Navy Fleet in the September 1813 Battle of Lake Erie to the commander of a modern US Navy ship. This event was the official opening of a number of ceremonies and activities that will commemorate the bi-centennial of the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813 that took place about 10 miles north of Port Clinton.
