While parsing through the Day By Day entries I cameto Twain’s 
visitJamestown for the Ter-Centennial,the300th anniversary of the 
founding of the colony,which includedRobert Fulton Day Ceremonies.Fulton 
is significant to the prevalent image of Mark Twain because of their 
respective associations with steamboats. I found an interesting biopic 
of Fulton in “The Industrial 
Making of the Modern World 1776–1914“ by Gavin Weightman.From this 
sourceFulton appearsasmore a promoter than an inventor.
