Opposite this spot, on the shores of Presque Isle Bay, Commodore Perry built his ships. The "Lawrence," "Niagara," "Ariel," "Porcupine," "Scorpion" & "Tigress." On August 12, 1813, the fleet sailed and on September 10, 1813, at Put-in-Bay, defeated the British fleet under Commodore Barclay. After the battle, the wounded were brought back to Erie. A few years later the "Detroit", and "Queen Charlotte" (captured British vessels) and the "Lawrence" and "Niagara" were sunk near this point in Misery Bay.
