Ka-Boom! The smoke and gun power explodes- once again we have the rockets red glare. With simultaneous fireworks at Put-in-Bay and Lakeside, one starts to think about the battles that did occur on this lake.
The Put-In-Bay monument in plain view from the Lakeside shore is named for Oliver Hazard Perry, who turned the tide in 1812- "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Tonight we celebrate our freedom once again.
Wishing you all a happy Independance Day!
