1999Originally a merchant schooner, the ship was purchased by the US Navy in 1812 and renamed Ohio, under the command of Sailing Master Daniel Dobbins. She carried a crew of 35 and was armed with one 24-pounder. The ship was primarily used for resupply operations, moving stores and provisions between Erie, Pennsylvania and Sandusky, Ohio, where Perry's fleet was anchored. The ship left for Erie on the morning of September 10, 1813, before the battle began. She returned three days later with much needed supplies. In August 1814 the Ohio, along with the Somers, was captured by the British.
