Perry 200 Bicentennial Souvenir Book

If you're looking for a snazzy overview of the multitude of events held to celebrate Perry's victory in the Battle of Lake Erie, I've got the book for you.

The Perry 200 Commemoration Bicentennial Souvenir Book is a must for fans of the history of Erie, PA, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and the War of 1812. This full-color hard cover book boasts more than 150 pages and documents the events held for the Centennial 1913, the Sesquicentennial in 1963 and the Bicentennial in 2013. There are also a lot of pictures of the Brig Niagara!

David Frew and Jerry Skrypzak did a fine job in assembling all the parts and putting things in context. The book was published by the Jefferson Educational Society of Erie, PA.
