A chance to bring more attention to the Delta Queen
 
I was watching History Channel and saw them adverise their ongoing efforts to save and preserve Americas history. This gave me the idea to contact them to offer the Americana that is as important as the Model A. I don't know if they will take the subject of the Delta Queen or any of the paddlewheelers, but I had to try.

They've been made aware of the plight of the DELTA QUEEN since August 1 or 2, 2007. They were the first call I made. But maybe if enough of us hound them long enough they'll come around. Good luck on your effort.

We have to keep trying.
 
When I presented my topic I made sure to include other endangered vessels too, namely the SS United States and Mississippi Queen as a few examples of the Americana and how we should try to preserve these pieces of history. I compared their importance to the USS Constitution and model A.
