Senator Pat Toomey Resolution Honors Erie

Commemorating The 200th Anniversary Of The Battle Of Lake Erie

The Senate Unanimously Approves My Resolution Honoring The City Of Erie
This week in Erie, I attended the Perry 200, a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. At the ceremony, I presented the Perry 200 Commission a copy of the bipartisan resolution I introduced in the Senate which commemorates this dramatic encounter in our nation's history.

The Battle of Lake Erie breathed new life into the American war effort and captured the imagination of our young country. Contributing in no small way to this victory was the city of Erie, which provided the safe locale, supplies, and muscle necessary to build the victorious fleet in limited time.

You can read more about the battle and find the full text of my bipartisan resolution here. Congratulations to the city of Erie and the devoted community that worked so hard to commemorate this event.
