Default General Allen/Minnesota

The General Allen was sold as surplus by the Rock Island District in 1943. Bought by Central Barge Co. and towed on the Tennessee River. Dismantled in 1944 and used as a landing boat at Joliet. In 1966 the remains were towed to St. Louis and became a restaurant boat called the River Queen. Sank in 1978, at St. Louis, with name of Cotton Blossom.
