1. Ariel Hall Marker
Inscription.  Launched at Presque Isle in the spring of 1813, the schooner Ariel was commanded by Lieutenant John Packet during the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813. She carried a crew of 36 and was armed with four 12-pounders. At the onset of the battle the Ariel and other small ships suffered little as the British fleet concentrated on the Lawrence. As the ship was battered the Ariel stood gallantly by the flagship, inflicting what damage she could. There is no record of the Ariel's whereabouts after the battle. Listed as a United States naval war vessel until 1816, her fate remains a mystery.
