Part of the Tales of the Early Republic Web Project
From the earliest days of keelboats to at least the Civil War. Decent looking popular history (only a 2-page bibliography and no notes), with many 19c illustrations, including pictures of some famous boats: Batan Rouge, Messenger, Ouachita, Robert E. Lee, Moselle (pictured exploding).
