Presentation: (Refer to www.steamcoffin.com)
Historian and author John Laurence Busch will attempt to re-calibrate your mind before showing why the proposition of making the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean on a “steamship” was met with a mixture of skepticism and fear. Then he will show how Captain Moses Rogers addressed those fears, by using modern concepts of quality to build the first steamship in history. The presentation is based upon his book, “STEAM COFFIN: Captain Moses Rogers and The Steamship Savannah Break the Barrier.”
Hope to see you there!
