    I keep telling you, bring that Texas Navy up to Lake Erie and the Ohio Navy will whip ’em good! We could recreate the Battle of Put-in-Bay.

    There is a Civil War connection there, too. John Brown Jr., and several members of his family are buried on South Bass Island, where Put-in-Bay is located. Also, on Gibraltar Island, which sits in Put-in-Bay harbor, is located Cooke’s Castle, built and once owned by Jay Cooke. Visitors to his castle included “a variety of notables, such as William Tecumseh Sherman, Salmon P. Chase, Rutherford B. Hayes, Grover Cleveland, and Benjamin Harrison.”

    My wife and I will be taking our annual trip to PIB next week.
