Time present and time past....

Standing proud next to skyscrapers and concrete roadways Niagara, one of more than a dozen Tall Ships to grace Chicago's Lake Michigan this past weekend, slowly greets Monday morning and prepares to depart the city. It was a magnificent sight to see the ships - schooners, brigs, sloops - parading off the city's skyline.

Jenny: What your looking at is a reconstruction that took place in 1988. The original U.S. Brig Niagara was a warship commanded by Oliver Perry. He won the Battle of Lake Erie aboard the Niagara in 1813 during the War of 1812. The ship is 198 long, 121 feet tall and is owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
