Subject: Re: Posting the Past


Thanks to all who have aired their opinions on posting memories of the good old days on the boats. I am often reminded of a LARGE sign which hangs in the Old Court House Museum at Vicksburg, Mississippi which reads: "THOSE WHO FORGET THEIR PAST HAVE NO FUTURE!" As one who came to steamboating when I was just a kid, I reveled in the remembrances of those who had been on the river for years and passed along their information and memorabilia as sort of a "sacred trust". My offerings on this board are for that very reason. We need ALL the steamboat enthusiasts we can get, not only to keep our beloved steamboats running on the rivers, but to never let go of this very important piece of our heritage. Again, thanks to ALL who read and post on this board. Keep up steam! Keith
