1. Steamboat Heroine Marker
Inscription.  A steamboat is a large boat that uses steam for power. Many of these boats were used to transport supplies to soldiers and settlers all over the country in the nineteenth century. One sank in the Red River while it was bringing supplies to Fort Towson. The steamboat Heroine wreck was discovered and excavated by archaeologists beginning in the late 1990s. Have you ever ridden on a boat? What was it like? What types of supplies do you think they were carrying?
