Steamers Digital Exhibit
As steamers developed into a dependable form of transportation during the nineteenth
century, they began to spring up on the rivers of coastal North Carolina and the
Albemarle Sound. The Steamers Exhibit describes the construction of the Steamer
BERTIE in 1871 by the Askew family, and steamboat navigation issues including the
BERTIE's regular operations, excursions, repairs, and connecting vessels, as well
information on another vessel built by the Askews.
For ease of navigation within this exhibit, the digital resources have been grouped into categories:
Users can return to any of these groupings from any part of the exhibit.
