The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Winslow (Tug), 13 May 1862

Full Text

The new steam tug WINSLOW reached here Sunday afternoon from Cleveland, with 2 vessels in tow, which were brought through the entire distance. The WINSLOW, like other tugs, built at that point, is a fine looking craft, and will well compare in every respect with others that have already made their appearance, and, as a whole, even surpass any of them. With 2 large vessels in tow she made the run from Cleveland to the mouth of the Detroit
River, making 8 1/2 miles an hour. This is fast time, but we have Capt. Bob Anderson's statement to that effect, and shall not at this time question it for a moment. Her pilot house is elegantly tipped off with a gilt eagle, representing from the shoulders to the tip of the horns. The top of her pipe has an Indian warrior with tomahawk in hand, as if on the eve of battle. The WINSLOW is 126 ft. long, 26 ft. beam, and 11 ft. hold. Capt. Anderson, who is part owner, commands her.
