The next presenter in our line up for 2019 is Robert McGreevy.
The Steamboat, the story of the Walk in the Water, the first steam powered vessel on the upper Great lakes.
This year is the 200th anniversary of the Walk in the Waters arrival at Detroit. The Walk in the Water was also the first steamboat to sink in a November storm. What were the forces behind the development and building of this amazing ship and how did this single voyage change everything on the Great lakes?
All these questions, and more, will be answered in the presentation about this pioneer steamboat.
