Harrison Monnnrenf At Fulton Amf
Perry Is Rich In Historical Lore
Of Famous Battles In War Of 1812
On September 10, 1913 a great celebration took place in
Port Clinton. It was the dedication of Harrison's monument
at the foot of Fulton Street. That date .marked the 100th
Anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie.,
In the summer of 1813, Gen. William H. Harrison was
camped- on the Sandusky Bay Peninsula ready to attack
Detroit and invade Canada. But, he
could not cross the Lake with his
Army as long as the British fleet
was in command of Lake Erie. On
Sept: 10, 1813 the small American
fleet commanded by Commodore
Oliver Perry sailed out of its base
at Put-in-Bay and engaged the
British fleet a short distance nodth
west of that island. Gen. Harrison
had a number of his best sharp
shooters to assist Com. Perry. They
had taken positions in the riggings
oI the ships and their accurate
rifle fire picked off a number of
officers on the British men-of-war
at a critical time of the battle,
causing a confusion in the British
command. After the American fleet
had defeated the British, Commo
dore Jerry's men naturally wantt'd
to go in for the kill. But, Com.
Perry said "Boys, the men on yon
der-ships have mothers, wives, sis
ters and sweethearts waiting for
them to return, the same as you ships of Com. Perry, from the spot
have. Put them in the Bay". The
Bay on the Island that was then
known as South Bass Island. From
those words the Island got its
present name "Put-in-Bay". The
ships were beached in the shallow
water of the Bay, making it pos
sible for the British sailors to wade
Com. Perry them sent his famous
message to Gen. Harrison "We
have met the enemy, and they are
ours. Two ships, two brigs, one
schooner and one sloop". This mes
sage was received first by Gen.
Cass, of Gen. Harrison's staff, who
was Governor of the Michigan terri
tory, on a spot between Fulton St.
and Lincoln Drive. It later became
the True farm, and in 1906 was
plotted out and now forms the east
part of Port Clinton.
After receiving the message Gen.
Harrison's army embarked in the
