Description:
"Before 1841 propeller-driven steamboats were virtually unknown on the Great Lakes. Suddenly, that summer, propellers (as they came to be better known) began to enter the waters of Lake Ontario at Kingston. Before the Vandalia appeared on her trial trips in late November, at least four propellers had made their way up through the Rideau Canal system."
