"Mistress of the Mississippi" - The J.M.White, named for a famous riverboat captain, was the most luxurious steamboat that ever navigated the Mississippi River.  Launched on April 3, 1878, she was 375’ long and her deck measured 91’ in width.  Her feather-crowned chimneys rose upward 81’ and two men were required to turn her 12’ diameter steering wheel.  She was lavishly appointed with the finest furnishings and her passengers were treated like royalty.  The nautical masterpiece was considered the fastest steamboat of her day.  On a fateful voyage from Vicksburg, Mississippi on December 13, 1888, the J.M.White was destroyed by fire ending a remarkable 10 year career on the Mississippi.  Signed and titled by Jim Blanchard
