Erie is the home of the US Brig Niagara. This wooden brig is a replica of the flagship once commanded by Oliver Hazard Perry in the 1813 Battle of Lake Erie. The present day Niagara is the official flagship of the State of Pennsylvania, and due to the Niagara's presence, Erie's nickname is "The Flagship City." Perry's report to General Harrison of victory in the Battle of Lake Erie, "We have met the enemy and they are ours..." has become a classic quote from American history. The flagship Niagara is usually docked at the Erie Maritime Museum in Erie, and was even featured on a Pennsylvania License Plate.
Erie was the hometown of The Oneders (pronounced "Wonders"), in the Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do.
