Hudson River Steamboat Catastrophes
Beginningin the mid-1800s, steamboats carried people between New York City and theAlbany area on the Hudson River. Romantic images lull us into believing it wasa quiet means of travel, but a crowded river, faulty equipment and the bravadoof the captains resulted in at least one major catastrophe every year. Nightboats collided and sank, carelessness caused boiler explosions, races putpassengers at risk and fires would quickly swallow the wooden vessels. Thegrand Empire of Troy suffered manycollisions. The Swallow broke in twoon a rock, Reindeer’s explosion tookforty lives at once and the Oregonand C. Vanderbilt entered into anepic and dangerous race. Collected from eyewitness accounts, these are some ofthe most exciting and frightening stories of peril aboard steamboats on theHudson River.
