Official Postcrossing Postcard US-676280


Beautiful historical postcard of the Flagship Niagara. Thanks, Pam!

"A remnant of  Erie's greatest historical moment, the War of 1812, the Flagship Niagara calls Erie, PA it's home. Oliver Hazard Perry, the ship's first commander, forced the British squadron to surrender. Perry's battle flag slogan: "Don't Give Up The Ship" remains a citywide motto."

Very cool card, "Don't give up the ship" that will be my quote of the day : )
