DVD - Steamship America Documentary

The Steamer America was a star in the early 1900s, with her speed and relative luxury she became a vital lifeline and a friend to many. Her eventual sinking in 1928 was like losing a family member. WDSE's new historical documentary weaves oral histories, new & vintage photographs, newspaper accounts and dramatic images to capture life on the shore in the early days of the 20th Century--a time when the Steamer America became legend.
