Galesville in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
"Emma Giles - the very name conjures up memories of the hustle, bustle and romance of a time when the steamboat played such a vital part in this area's growth. Whenever she docked, everyone raced down to see her and watch with fascination as the passengers alighted and the freight was placed on board."
Jean Sieger Trott, Galesville native.
