Frederick L Johnson captures the history of our area in his well written account of the Sea Wing steamship disaster. It was in 1890 when over 200 passengers boarded the Sea Wing for an excursion and a day of pleasure on Lake Pepin. Mr Johnson reveals the terror and desperation of passengers and crew as a storm capsizes the steamer. The Sea Wing is the state’s worst river disaster.
