“Steam isn’t strong enough to push a boat upriver,” people said to Nick Roosevelt when he unveiled the first steamboat on the Ohio River. But Mr. Roosevelt had designed the boat carefully, and he was sure it would work. For its maiden voyage, the New Orleans was to go down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to its namesake city, turn around, and go back upriver, against the current. No one thought it could be done. Then Mother Nature put a twist on the story, making the outcome even more uncertain.
