The Steamboat

Invented by Robert Fulton

Robert Fulton invented the steamboat. Before it was launched, people usually got around by row boats, horse, and mule trains; now they could easily go up the river to ship goods. This was a major success for Fulton after he made a 150 mile voyage. Today, people have made improvements to make stronger, bigger boats but without the steamboat, we might not have the transportation we do today.
