This authentic Mississippi Paddlewheel Steamboat reminds US Mark Twain's famous Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Mississippi riverboats were jacks-of-all-trades. They carried cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across rivers.
A steamboat or steamship, sometimes called a steamer, is a ship in which the primary method of propulsion is steam power, typically driving a propeller or paddlewheel. The term steamboat is usually used to refer to smaller steam-powered boats working on lakes and rivers, particularly riverboats; steamship generally refers to steam powered ships capable of carrying a (ship's) boat.
Today, nuclear powered warships and submarines use steam to drive turbines, but are not referred to as steamships or steamboats.
