U.S. Brig Niagara's sailing season sunk

The U.S. Brig Niagara could spend its entire summer in Erie, due in large part to state government's $2 billion budget deficit.The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is studying a recommendation to discontinue the Niagara's sailing program, which includes visits to ports throughout the Great Lakes and public educational sails. The state-owned Niagara is a replica of the flagship that Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry used to defeat the British in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.
