Default Pennsylvania vs. The Wheeling & Belmont Bridge Co.

I misdated this Supreme Court case as occuring in 1854; it was actually 1851. Testimony taken by Reubin Hyde Walworth, Commissioner for the Court can be found on the Internet. Issues included safety concerns over clearance of steamboat smoke stacks (known as "chimmneys") under a proposed bridge over the Ohio River. The witnesses were engineers, captains, and other experienced rivermen about many different aspects of steamboat operation on the Ohio, such as problems in traversing the "Falls of the Ohio" rapids at Louisville. One of the witnesses was Thomas J. Halderman, who in 1844 had been captain of the "Lucy Walker."
