PERRYSBURG - Larry Nelson, adjunct assistant professor of history at Bowling Green State University, will present a lecture on "The Southern Sorties" at Fort Meigs on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The First Siege of Fort Meigs in May 1813 consisted of five days of heavy artillery bombardment and one day of intense fighting on both sides of the Maumee River. The two engagements on the south side of the river, Clay's Landing and Miller's Charge, were part of a coordinated attack that ended in success for American forces, yet tend to be overlooked by the more disastrous defeat of U.S. forces on the north side of the river. However, these southern sorties saw intense fighting and represent some of the first American successes in the Western Theater of war and should not be overlooked.
