"On August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was formed to manage special places set aside to reflect the character of a great nation-and preserve them for our children and grand children," Mary A. Bomar, 17th Director of the National Park Service.
The National Park Service manages over 391 sites, and reaches beyond park boundaries to help communities preserve their heritage. It is the responsibility of the men and women of the National Park Service to insure that these special places stand the test of time.

The phrase emblazoned on Perry’s flag, “Dont give up the ship” were not Perry’s words, but the dying utterance of U.S. Captain James Lawrence. Lawrence, a good friend of Perry, was killed commanding the U.S.S. Chesapeake in an action with the British ship H.M.S. Shannon on June 1, 1813.
