The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
General Wayne (Steamboat), 1838


Description
Full Text

The steamboat GENERAL WAYNE, which was built last year, has been refitted this spring, and now ranks in point of elegance, and all steam boat qualities among the first on the lake. She was built at Perrysburgh of timber out on Wayne3's battle ground, and named at first "MAD ANTHONY." Afterwards, however, in deferance to the ignorance of a great many sensible people, as to who or what "Mad Anthony" was, the name was changed to the GENERAL WAYNE.
