Keynote Presentation

Building the First "Steamship" in History

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 Rogers addressed those fears, by designing and successfully managing the construction of a new kind of steam vessel.

About the Speaker

He has devoted years of research to discovering the true story of Captain Moses Rogers and the steamship Savannah.
