Ghost Ships

Historian Jim Fischer will present “Ghost Ships of Lake Ontario” at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 12, at the Chili Public Library, 3333 Chili Ave.

Dressed as a sailor, he will tell the story of two battleships (the Hamilton and the Scourge) that sank in Lake Ontario during the War of 1812.

Fischer will tell of the 53 crewmen who died and of the ongoing efforts to recover the ships and bodies of those lost. No registration is required.
