“Perry’s Victory on Lake Erie, September the 10th. 1813. Representing the position of the two Fleets, at the moment when the Niagara is pushing through the enemy’s line, pouring her thunder upon them from both broadsides, and forcing them to surrender in succession to the American Flag.

Stauffer 3138. Olds 239. Smith 127. CONDITION: Very good with original coloring and extremely light toning to paper; not examined out of frame, but visual examination confirms that print is not laid-down. JLK
