On the 10th of September, 1813 the United States Navy won the Battle of Lake Erie against the Royal Navy. This was a crucial victory for the Americans in the 1812 War as control of Lake Erie, which lay with Ontario to the north and Ohio to the south, meant that the British and their Native Americans allies in the west were cut off from their supply base.
