Brig Niagara sails between the British line.

Commodore Perry, aboard the Niagara, won the first US Navy fleet action and captured an entire British squadron. Perry reported "Dear General (Harrison): We have met the enemy and they are ours. Two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop. Yours with great respect and esteem, O.H. Perry".
