Final Voyage


"While attempting to make the harbor at Racine, the scow Home, lumber laden for Racine, became disabled owing to the vessel's steering apparatus becoming broken. The scow went ashore next to the north pier striking the wreck of the Scott in the process and stove in her bottom. The Home went to pieces soon after. The Life-Saving Service salvaged about half of the cargo." "All attempts to release the scow Home are fruitless, and it now is proposed to strip her to pieces. It is thought when she went ashore she struck the sunken wreck of the Scott, which went down in the same spot ten years ago, and thus stove in her bottom beyond repair." Last Document Surrendered Milwaukee 11/30/1876 "Total Loss".
