Perry Memorial Lighthouse (2/9)

List item

Taking three years to build between 1912 and 1915 in Put-in-Bay in Ohio, Perry’s Victory and International Memorial commemorates all those that fought and died at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. Celebrating the lasting peace between the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada following the conflict, the site is the only international peace memorial owned by the United States Parks and is 47 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York. The remains of three American officers and three British officers continue to lie underneath this impressive monument.
