| Fought in September, 1813, the Battle of Lake Erie was a turning point in the War of 1812, a conflict which, if it did not create the United States as the Revolutionary War did, changed the course of its history forever. In a single engagement, an American fleet under the leadership of Oliver Hazard Perry shocked the greatest naval power on Earth.
With great detail and unmatched authenticity, We Have Met The Enemy will delve into the life of 27-year-old Perry and how he overcame incredible challenges to construct the US fleet and lead his men to victory against the British in a battle that would change the course of America and influence the fate of four nations. After receiving the British surrender, Perry famously wrote to General William Henry Harrison: “We have met the enemy and they are ours." The stories of Perry and the battle have never been told quite like this.
