Battle of Lake Erie, 10 September 1813

Mural begun by Charles Robert Patterson and completed in 1959 by Howard B. French. It depicts the U.S. Brig Niagara, flagship of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry, raking the British warships Queen Charlotte and Detroit, which are afoul of each other after colliding. Niagara is flying Perry's "Don't Give Up the Ship" battle flag at her mainmast peak.

This mural, presented to the U.S. Naval Academy by Admiral and Mrs. Thomas C. Hart, is on display in the Academy's Memorial Hall.
