Propeller GALENA, ashore on Tawas Point; lightered off.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall



      THE PROPELLER GALENA ASHORE AND IS IN GREAT DANGER. - The propeller
GALENA is hard aground on Tawas Point, abreast the light. She lies in about nine feet of
water, and her position is critical. A large lot of horses and most of her passengers, have
been brought ashore by the steamer EIGHT OHIO. The GALENA is firmly embedded
on the point, and her captain has telegraphed to Au Sable for a tug and lighter. It the wind
should change to the northeast before she is relieved she would probably pound to pieces.
Her safety depends on the early arrival of the tug and lighter. She lies outside the point.
