A decisive battle in the War of 1812, on September 10, 1813, nine U.S. vessals defeated and captured six British vessals in the Battle of Lake Erie, effectively taking control of the strategic Lake Erie.  This defeat of the Royal Navy also facilitated the destruction of the Indian Confederation of Tecumseh, a mutual defense organization of Native American tribes.  This battle was also significant for the U.S. in gaining control of the Niagara peninsula throughout 1814, and removed the threat of British attacks in Ohio, New York, and other places.
