Sean David Visintainer, curator of the Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterways Library (St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis), relates the tales of stunning fires aboard such steam boats as the Princess, the Sultana, and the White Cloud, which in 1849 nearly destroyed the city of St. Louis. A program not to miss!
