SS Savannah

She was originally laid down as a packet ship, while the ship was still on the slipway, Captain Moses Rogers, with the financial backing of the Savannah Steam Ship Company, purchased the vessel in order to convert it to an auxiliary steamship and gain the prestige of inaugurating the world’s first transatlantic steamship service.

In January 1820, a great fire swept through the city of Savannah, doing severe damage to the business district. The owners of the Savannah, William Scarbrough and his partners, suffered losses in the fire and were forced to sell the ship. Savannah’s engine was removed and resold. After this she was used as a sailing packet, operating between New York and Savannah, Georgia, until running aground along the south shore of Long Island on November 5th, 1821, and subsequently breaking up.
