PUT-IN-BAY, Ohio (AP) — They won't give up the ships.
A fleet of tall ships will re-enact the Battle of Lake Erie on Monday afternoon, 200 years after the U.S.-British clash considered a turning point in the War of 1812.
They will fire when ready Monday afternoon on the lake's open waters northwest of South Bass Island.
There are 16 tall ships scheduled to take part. The event is expected to draw hundreds of boaters.
Many of the ships have been on display for tours and rides over the weekend as Ohio celebrates the bicentennial of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's capture of a British fleet near Put-in-Bay.
