1818 - The first steamship in Lake Erie, Walk-in-the-Water, completes her maiden voyage arriving in Detroit. She had set out from Buffalo on the 23rd, and completed the 290 mile trip in just over 44 hours. (Edwin C. Guillet, Early Life in Upper Canada, Toronto: The Ontario Publishing Co., Ltd., 1933, p. 470)
