Museum in Gold Bridge?[edit]

I dfon't have tiem to keep up with your edits, but wanted to comment about yoru addition about the museum in Gold Bridge....last I looked the Bralorne-Pioneer Museum eas still in Bralorne, or is there a new one in Gold Bridge now? Bralorne's hockey teams (Bralorne had its own, and Pioneer its own) were minor hockey stars; the Bralorne Golddiggers as i remember they were called were rivals of teh Trail Smoke Eaters (sp?) and the other company town teams like the one from Ocean Falls and Anyox. I recommend you read Lewis Greens' b ook before adding too much more btw; and read WP:MOS and WP:OR and related materials such as WP:POV and WP:What Wikipedia is not. Later, I'm browsing literally 4000 items or more on my watchlist, gonna head back to seteamboat routes and steambots once I do some geo/anthro articles currnelty in momentum. And BTW please establish a username; you always log in form the same IP address, doncha? Might as well. All it will mean is this page will ahve your username instead of an IP address for a title (or a page like it, that is) and that other editors will have a handle to address you by, or refer to you as; I know who you are, pseudonymously anyway and IP-wise also; but given the amount of work you're doing I suggest you create and account and also join WP:WikiProject British Columbia.Skookum1 (talk) 03:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not vandalize pages, as you did with this edit to Open-pit mining. If you continue to do so, you will be blocked from editing. Sceptre (talk) 17:59, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Sceptre, you're outta line; since when is adding a (not unimportant or tiny) mine to a list of mines on a page about mines "vandalism". To me, your inappropriate merge of that mine article to Logan Lake, British Columbia was what was vandalism, or the uppity-admin variety; mine articles are not the same as town articles and while some town articles include mine info that should be split off to mine articles, the reverse is not true. Logan Lake is not Highland Valley; they are near each other; likewise the Copper Mountain Mine, when I finally get to writing it (or someone does) will not be suitable in the Copper Mountain, British Columbia or Allenby, British Columbia articles (those were the two company towns attached to the mine). This IP user is a storehouse of knowledge on articles relating to BC industry (he's a retired engineer) and while he may not have Wiki-style/content guidelines down, he's an interesting and worthwhile contributor who needs, if anything, education and encouragement; not "attack" edits or being called a vandal when his so called vandalism of the Open-pit mining page was not vandalism in any usual sense of the term. Myself, as an experienced contributor and devoted Wikipedian, I think you should apologize; and reverse your vandalistic merge (which you didn't disucss with anyone on the talkpage first).Skookum1 (talk) 21:04, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Follow-up: I've since discovered that the Highland Valley Copper/Logan Lake merge was done not by Sceptre, but by User:Brewcrewer, who I've taken the matter up with on his talkpage now instead. The removal + vandal--calling problem still applies; it wasn't very civil and showed no good faith; if someone makes a mistake in the course of making a contrtibutino, fix the mistake, don't axe teh contribution. And don't threaten newcomers, it's not nice.Skookum1 (talk) 03:17, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Mississippi


Who is the clown who put it on Redirect? P. Mason.

Background

Steamboats on the Mississippi benefited from technological and political changes. The US bought the Louisiana Purchase from France and a semi-bankrupt Napoleon, then currently trying to conquer the world. The US was then free to expand westward out of the Ohio valley and into the mid-west and south, south west. The success of the Charlotte Dundas in Scotland in 1801 and robert Fultons's Clermont on the Hudson River in 1807 proved the concept of the steamboat. At this time, walking beam mill engines,of Boulton and Watt variety, were dropped onto wood barges with paddles to create an instant powerboat. The overhead engines of "walking beam" type became the standard Atlantic Seaboard paddle engine for the next 80 years. For smaller boats, Watt perfected the side-lever engine with the engine cut down using side bell cranks to lower the center of gravity.

The War of 1812 caused political upheaval in the south, particularly with the Royal Navy blockade of the US Gulf Coast ports, but after the Peace of Ghent and resumption of peace, New Orleans was firmly American, after passing through French and English hands. New Orleans became the great port on the mouth of the Mississippi.

The invention of the Cotton Gin revolutionized the cotton industry, as separating the seeds became mechanized.


Golden Age of Steamboats

By the 1830s, with the southern states joining the Union and the land converted to cotton plantations so indicative of the Antebellum South, methods were needed to move the bales of cotton. The steamboat was perfect. At first sidewheelers were used.


In 1829, there were surveys of the two major obstacles on the upper Mississippi, the Des Moines Rapids and the Rock Island Rapids, where the river was shallow and the riverbed was rock. The Des Moines Rapids were about 11 mi (18 km) long and just above the mouth of the Des Moines River at Keokuk, Iowa. The Rock Island Rapids were between Rock Island and Moline, Illinois. Both rapids were considered virtually impassable. In 1848, the Illinois and Michigan Canal was built to connect the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan via the Illinois River near Peru, Illinois. In 1900, the canal was replaced by the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. The canal allowed Chicago to address specific health issues (typhoid, cholera and other waterborne diseases) by sending its waste down the Illinois and Mississippi river systems rather than polluting its water source of Lake Michigan. The canal also provided a shipping route between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi. The Army Corps of Engineers recommended the excavation of a 5 ft (1.5 m) deep channel at the Des Moines Rapids, but work did not begin until after Lieutenant Robert E. Lee endorsed the project in 1837. The Corps later also began excavating the Rock Island Rapids. By 1866, it had become evident that excavation was impractical, and it was decided to build a canal around the Des Moines Rapids. The canal opened in 1877, but the Rock Island Rapids remained an obstacle.

For most of the 19th century and part of the early 20th century, trade on the Mississippi River would be dominated by paddle-wheel steamboats. Their success led to penetration deep into the continent, where Anson Northrup in 1859 became first steamer to cross the U.S.-Canadian border on the Red River. They would also be involved in major political events, as when Louis Riel seized International at Fort Garry, or Gabriel Dumont was engaged by Northcote at Batoche. Very few such craft survive to the present day. Most were destroyed by boiler explosions or fires.


St. Louis became an important trade center, both for the overland route for the Oregon and California trails, but as a supply point for the Mississippi. George Eads was a famed engineer who ran a shipyard and first built riverboats, then armed riverboats and finally the famed bridge over the Mississippi.

Civil War with Steamboats

The US Civil war was a vicious affair, it spilled over to the Mississippi with naval seiges and naval war using paddlewheelers. The USS Cairo is a wrecked survivor of the Vicksburg battle.


The naval battle at Fort Pillow, Tennessee (sometimes known as the engagement at Plum Point Bend) took place on the Mississippi River between the Confederate River Defense Fleet and Federal ironclads approximately four miles above Fort Pillow, Tennessee on 10 May 1862, during the American Civil War. Following the fall of Island No. 10 and other Confederate losses to the north and east of Fort Pillow, the main U.S. Navy flotilla on the Mississippi River proceeded down river. On May 10, 1862, the Union flotilla met the Confederate River Defense Fleet in the naval battle of Plum Point Bend within sight of Fort Pillow. During the battle, the Union's Cincinnati was sunk and the Mound City was badly damaged. Although the Confederate gunboats were victorious, the Union gunboats were soon able to proceed down river and attack Memphis the following month.

Battle of Memphis

The First Battle of Memphis was a naval battle fought on the Mississippi River immediately above the city of Memphis on June 6, 1862, during the American Civil War. The engagement was witnessed by many of the citizens of Memphis. It resulted in a crushing defeat for the Rebels, and marked the virtual eradication of a Confederate naval presence on the river. Despite the lopsided outcome, the Union Army failed to grasp its strategic significance. Its primary historical importance is that it was the last time civilians with no prior military experience were permitted to command ships in combat. As such, it is a milestone in the development of professionalism in the United States Navy.[1]

The defending Confederates closely matched the advancing Federal force in raw numbers, with eight Rebel vessels opposing nine Union gunboats and rams, but the fighting qualities of the former were far inferior. Each was armed with only one or two guns, of a light caliber that would be ineffective against the armor of the gunboats. The primary weapon of each was its reinforced prow, which was intended to be used in ramming opponents.

The Federal force consisted of five gunboats, four of which were known semi-officially as 'Eads gunboats,' after their builder, James Buchanan Eads, but more commonly as 'Pook Turtles,' after their designer, Samuel H. Pook, and their strange appearance.[3] The fifth gunboat, flagship USS Benton, was also a product of the Eads shipyards, but was converted from a civilian craft. Each of these vessels carried from 13 to 16 guns. The other four vessels were rams, with no armament whatever, aside from small arms carried by the officers. All of the rams had been converted from civilian riverboats, and had no common design.[4]

Mark Twain

Many of the works of Mark Twain deal with or take place near the Mississippi River. One of his first major works, Life on the Mississippi, is in part a history of the river, in part a memoir of Twain's experiences on the river, and a collection of tales that either take place on or are associated with the river. The Mississippi River was noted for the number of bandits which called its islands and shores home, including John Murrell who was a well-known murderer, horse stealer and slave "re-trader". His notoriety was such that author Twain devoted an entire chapter to him in Life on the Mississippi, and Murrell was rumored to have an island headquarters on the river at Island 37. Twain's most famous work, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is largely a journey down the river. The novel works as an episodic meditation on American culture with the river having multiple different meanings including independence, escape, freedom, and adventure.

For most of the 19th century and part of the early 20th century, trade on the Mississippi River would be dominated by paddle-wheel steamboats. Their success led to penetration deep into the continent, where Anson Northrup in 1859 became first steamer to cross the U.S.-Canadian border on the Red River. They would also be involved in major political events, as when Louis Riel seized International at Fort Garry, or Gabriel Dumont was engaged by Northcote at Batoche. Very few such craft survive to the present day. Most were destroyed by boiler explosions or fires. One of the few surviving Mississippi sternwheelers from this period, Julius C. Wilkie, is a museum ship at Winona, Minnesota.


The Belle of Louisville, out of Louisville, Kentucky is the oldest continually operating steamboat on the inland waterways of the United States: she was laid down as Idlewild in 1914.

There are six major commercial steamboats that currently operate on the inland waterways of the United States. They are the steamers Belle of Louisville, Delta Queen, Julia Belle Swain, Mississippi Queen, Natchez, and American Queen. Three of these boats are overnight passenger vessels operated by Majestic America Line, formerly the Delta Queen Steamboat Company of New Orleans, LA. The Enterprise (aka Enterprize) was the fourth steamboat west of the Allegheny Mountains. With an engine and power train designed and built by Daniel French, the Enterprise was launched in 1814 at Brownsville, Pennsylvania for her owners: the shareholders of the Monongahela and Ohio Steam Boat Company.[1] The Enterprise, under the command of Israel Gregg, was first used to transport passengers and cargo to ports between Brownsville and Louisville, Kentucky.[2] From June to December she completed two voyages from Louisville to Pittsburgh that were against strong river currents. With these voyages the Enterprise demonstrated for the first time that steamboat commerce was practical on the Ohio River. Then, in response to General Andrew Jackson's fervent requests from New Orleans for firearms and ammunition, command was transferred to Henry Shreve. On December 21, 1814, the Enterprise departed Pittsburgh with a cargo of firearms and ammunition for American troops to use during the Battle of New Orleans.[3] After the American victory, the Enterprise was seized at the request of the heirs of the steamboat monopoly granted to Robert Livingston and Robert Fulton. After her release, Shreve steered the Enterprise homeward. During this voyage she became the first steamboat to reach Louisville from New Orleans.[4] Then the Enterprise steamed to Pittsburgh and Brownsville.[5] This voyage, a distance of 2,000 miles from New Orleans, was performed against the powerful currents of the Mississippi, Ohio and Monongahela rivers. Subsequently, the judge in the Enterprise trial at New Orleans established a legal precedent by ruling against the monopolists. The seizure of the Enterprise produced a strong reaction by the public against the monopolists. In January 1817, the Kentucky legislature passed the following resolution:[6] Resolutions relative to the free navigation of the river Mississippi. Be it resolved by the general assembly of the commonwealth of Kentucky, That they have viewed with the deepest concern, the violation of the right guaranteed by the federal constitution and the laws of congress, to navigate the river Mississippi, in the seizure of the Steam Boat Enterprize, under the pretended authority of a law enacted by the legislature of the late Territory of New Orleans. Resolved, That they will maintain inviolate by all legitimate means the right of her citizens to navigate said river, and its tributary streams. The Enterprise's epic voyage, which demonstrated for the first time that steamboat commerce on the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers was practical, and the judge's landmark ruling against the monopolists did much to stimulate the growth of steamboat commerce on America's western rivers.
