MARY POWELL- "Queen of the Hudson" , the build and history/ Rex Stewart

Posted 12-09-2011 at 05:08 AM by Rex Stewart
The United States had encountered two great wars. One from within, the Civil War; and, the other from its mother Nation across the Atlantic, the War of 1812.

Though two generations apart, both events connected a famous steamboat, fighting ship and two Irish-American families. Both vessels and both families endured the social and political biases of American culture to rise as God's children to a better calling. The steamboat that connected these families was known as the "Queen of the Hudson". She was the MARY POWELL.
