The Battle of Lake Erie' by Charles Oscar Paullin contains A Collecion of Documents, chiefly by Commodore Perry including the Court-martial of Commander Barclay & the Court of Enquiry on Captain Elliott. This battle was the turning point of the war in the west. Previous to it, the American offensive campaign in that quarter had been uniformly unsuccessful. In the summer of 1812, General Isaac Hull, who had advanced into Canada and had besieged Malden, abandoned the siege, retreated to Detroit, and there surrendered that post and his army to the British.
