    Excerpt from History of American Steam Navigation It is not intended in this work to give the history of every steam vessel built in the United States, or of every line of steam vessels, for that would be an impossibility, as many of the records of the earlier vessels, as well as of the lines, are no longer in existence. Besides, many of the vessels have had no historical interest attached to them, being merely a duplicator in general of the vessels of the period: this could also be said of many vessels of a later date. The vessels named or historically noted are those that were a radical change either in hull or their machinery in their day, or were prominently connected with some of the lines that have come into notice during the development of our steam navigation interests, or had a reputation for high speed. There has been every endeavor made to obtain accuracy in all matters of detail given in these pages, original papers being always consulted when such were to be obtained. But with all the care taken, perfection must not be expected in every line covering such a period of time, and especially when details were not always given the best of care for preservation. It is through private papers treating on these subjects under early dates that the history has been connected together over this brief space of time. It is only since 1870 that we have had marine and engineering journals devoted more exclusively to these subjects. The rise and progress of American steam navigation has been a thing of very gradual development. Beginning with the experiments of John Fitch, who propelled his boat with vertically hung oars or paddles, we trace the trials made by Stevens and Livingston over a period of several years, with Oliver Evans, James Rumsey and others also trying to solve the problem of a successful steam vessel. But none of them were able to strike the happy combination of forces. That was left to Robert Fulton. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
