Excerpt from The Inter-State Board of the Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial Commissioners: Annual Meeting at Put-in-Bay, Ohio, September 10th, 1914
This pamphlet presents a synopsis of the most important business transacted, compiled from the records of the inter-state Board, together with a brief statement of the facts relative to the work entrusted to the Commissioners.
The laws enacted by Congress and all of the participating States provided for National and State celebrations of the one hundreth anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie and for the erection of a memorial. For these dual objects the National Government and the States of Ohio, Penn sylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, New York, Rhode Island and Kentucky made appropria tions at various times prior to the centennial celebrations of 1913. The national celebration was held at Put - in-bay Island during that summer, under the auspices of the inter-state Board, but the several state celebrations were conducted under the auspices of the several state commissions at appropriate points within such states and their expenses were borne from the funds appropri ated by such states. The inter-state Board was not concerned in such state celebrations and had no responsibility as to their finances, except that it provided for the cruise of the restored warship Niagara, Commodore Perry's flagship in the battle of Lake Erie, to the principal ports of the Great Lakes, and otherwise exhibited its interest and contributed the support of its organization to the success of all of the local celebrations.
