History of the Robert E. Lee Steamboat 1870

The first highways in America were the great rivers, which permitted the growth of commerce and transport. The advent of steam permitted the upstream navigation on rivers. The search for speed inspired marvelous competitions. One of the most famous races is that between Natchez and Robert E. Lee, held in 1870 between New Orleans and Saint Louis. After 750 miles of water the Robert E. Lee Steamboat won the race, covering the distance in 3 days, 18 hours and 14 minutes. The wooden model boat is solid hull kit.
