Very sad pictures indeed - did they ever determine the cause of her sinking? It always haunts me when in St. Louis, to look at the spot where the hull lies. I've never been lucky enough to be there when she surfaced, but I do have some good friends who were, so I have a small piece of her. What is it about steamboats that they can reach out and grab our hearts forever - especially boats that we've never even seen in person, or ever been on.
