This tiny village on South Bass Island played an important role in the War of 1812 – its bay was the base for U.S. naval commander Oliver Hazard Perry and his fleet during the pivotal battle of Lake Erie, now commemorated with the only peace memorial in the National Park system. Located five miles from the Canadian-American border, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial celebrates 100 years of existence this year.
