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. Then he will describe how Moses Rogers overcame that fear, by creating a new kind of vessel capable of overcoming the dangers of the sea. The Savanna was the first example of globalized high technology in history.
