Field Trip to Erie

BubbleShare: Share photos - Easy Photo Sharing

The Global Gorillas went on a field trip to Erie. They learned about a ship called the Brig Niagara. The Niagara was built in 1811. It was in the war of 1812, and it was built over five times. In the bottom of the ship there was 70 people sleeping. The U.S. won the battle because we had 2 ships, and that made it hard for the British. The British ship had more ammunition, but the U.S. pulled it together and won.

The Global Gorillas went inside of the museum and got to put Zachery, Spencer, and my heads in a replica of the Brig Niagara. We got to see a movie about the battle on Lake Erie. Plus I got to see where the canon balls from the British ship hit the Niagara. Plus we got to see how they lift up from the wind to block it. When I get older I want to work for them.
