The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Buckeye State (Steamboat), 21 Jul 1854

Full Text

The magnificent stm. BUCKEYE STATE has been withdrawn from the Michigan Central Railroad Line, and placed on the route between Buffalo and Chicago, by way of the lakes. This will afford the travelling public an excellent opportunity of avoiding the fatigue of railroad travelling, during the sultry season. By taking passage on the BUCKEYE STATE, they will have a pleasant and desirable trip to Chicago or other ports, by way of the Straits of Mackinac. She is staunch, commodius, comfortable and safe, and the trip will always be made by her in good time. Capt. Imson, who is still in command of her, is a most faithful and accomplished commander, and the travelers will never regret having made a trip with him. She leaves this port, on her first trip, for Chicago, Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Mackinac and the upper lake ports, on Thursday next, at 9:00 A.M. See advertisement in another column.
