Special Social Event - DECEMBER 10, 2014
Holiday Party and Author Presentation Dec 10th
MN Chapter ASM will host its annual holiday party in conjunction with its monthly technical meeting on Wednesday, December 10th at the Green Mill Best Western in Plymouth, Minnesota. Our guest presenter, John Laurence Busch, will conduct a multi-media presentation on Building the First "Steamship" in History. The presentation is based upon his book Steam Coffin, Caption Moses Rogers and The Steamship Savannah Beat the Barrier.
Historian and author John Laurence Busch will attempt to re-calibrate your mind before showing why the proposition of making the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean on a "steamship" was met with a mixture of skepticism and fear.
The Savannah is more than a “steamship.” She is the first example of globalized high technology in history.
