PUT-IN-BAY, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is celebrating the bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie.
Tuesday marks the 200th anniversary of the U.S.-British clash considered a turning point in the War of 1812.
Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik') will be among those at a bicentennial ceremony at Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie's South Bass Island.
The island is home to the 300-foot tall Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial.
Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry captured a British fleet near Put-in-Bay during the battle that's remembered for his command: "Don't Give Up the Ship."
