Playfair and Pathfinder
It has been 200 years since there has been such a momentous gathering of people and ships on the north coast of Ohio. In 1813, in the waters off of South Bass Island, there was a great naval battle. For the next dozen days we celebrate that battle’s legacy of peace. In the past 200 years, the battles fought in our peaceful Lake Erie waters have largely been confined to those of fishermen vs. walleye.
