Welcome to Perry's Victory
Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial was established to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie, during the War of 1812, and to celebrate the long-lasting peace between Britain, Canada and the U.S. The Memorial, a Doric column, rising 352 feet over Lake Erie is situated 5 miles from the longest undefended border in the world.
Did You Know?
General Harrison in Fort Meigs learned that part of the British fleet on Lake Erie was trapped by ice. On March 2, 1813 Harrison led a force of 170 men on sleighs. Leaving their sleighs at Middle Bass Island, they, marched northward, only to find that the ice had broken up and freed the ships.
