USS Brig Niagara Print  of Sea Trials by E J Lahy - image 1 of 10

The Brig Niagara is the actual ship built at Pa Erie by skilled ship rights , of local green timber that defeated the British fleet at the Battle of Lake Erie in 1914, freeing up the Great lakes for US shipping in the War of 1812. Oliver Hazard Perry came from Rhode Island with some experienced seamen and gunners, and trained local recruits to man the guns and vessels that demolished and captured the British fleet with Niagara's deadly short range carronades and two long guns.. After the battle, she was sunk for preservation in the harbor, then raised and sailed a hundred years later then dragged up on shore as to remember the battle, but weathered badly. The State of Pennsylvania finally spent millions to restore her, and she sails again each summer, and in 1976, went to New York for the Bicentennial tall ships parade. This was dated 1990, and was drawn after restoration, during original sea trials. This print is number 46 of 500, signed by the artist E J Lahey. It is unframed, wrapped in original plastic, slightly drawn in at corners by aging of plastic, but will be fine when plastic is removed for framing. Size of print is 20 inches by 14 with 3 inches of border
