On September 10, 2015, Compatriots John Franklin, Lee MacBride, Galen Swab, and Claude Custer of the Western Reserve Society SAR Color Guard participated in the Early Setters Association (ESA) remembrance ceremony of Commodore Perry’s Victory on Lake Erie during the War of 1812. This program was held at the Perry Monument at Ft. Huntington Park at Lakeside and West 4th St, Cleveland Ohio.

The event took place at the original location of Fort Huntington, where Perry, after the battle, sent his famous message: “Dear General, We have met the enemy and they are ours. Two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop. Yours with great respect and esteem, O.H. Perry.”

ESA Chaplin Paul Glenn asked everyone to join him in prayer for the organization, and to remember all veterans. President John Cimperman thanked everyone for coming, and told of Perry’s victory. Wreaths were placed by Deb Marisch of the Peter Navarre Chapter of the War of 1812, Joan Trefts of The Early Settlers Association, and Bill Trefts placed the Western Reserve Society Sons of the American Revolution wreath.  A nice group was in attendance, and afterwards traveled to Shooters in the Flats for a delicious lunch.
