The Wreck of the America in Southern Illinois
- A Flatboat on the Ohio River
- By: Mark J. Wagner
- Narrated by: Robert Diepenbrock
- Length: 3 hrs and 18 mins
Flatboats were the most prolific type of vessel on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers during the early 1800s. Thousands of these boats descended the two rivers each year, carrying not only valuable cargo to New Orleans but also western-bound emigrants to newly opened territories. By the late 1800s, flatboats had completely disappeared, and no intact examples were known to exist. That changed in 2000, when local residents found a wreck on the Ohio River shoreline in Illinois.
