Final Voyage


10/23/1862 "Attempted to enter Sheboygan Harbor at night, in a leaky condition. The captain mistook Kirkland's pier light for the light on the North Pier, and in attempting to make harbor, collided plumb on with the end of Kirkland's Pier, carrying away about 175 feet of it. As the North Harbor at this time did not carry a light, the error was traced to an old government Coast Pilot, which the Ocean Eagle's captain had been using, which erroneously placed the harbor light on the North Pier, rather than Kirkland's Pier.'
