The sound of cannon fire will mark the arrival of an historic tall ship on the downtown Buffalo waterfront Thursday as the nearly 200-foot-long U.S. Brig Niagara arrives at Canalside. The Niagara helped defeat six British vessels in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. But that's not the only piece of history visitors will find on the city's waterfront.
