Race Horse of the North River


The Troy Steamboat Company was one of many companies formed following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Gibbons  v. Ogden (1824), which ended a steamboat monopoly on the Hudson River. Chief Justice John Marshall wrote the opinion asserting Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce. The Troy Line honored the Chief Justice by naming its flagship the Chief Justice Marshall. With its maiden voyage on March 15, 1825, the steamboat would later become known as the “Race Horse of the North River,” after a record 14 1/2 hour trip from New York City to Albany. A commemorative plate issued by Enoch Wood & Sons paid tribute to the steamship.

 

Chief Justice Marshall Steamboat plate by Enoch Wood & Sons, c. 1825 - 1846. The blue transfer plate features a shell border and depicts the steamboat traveling along the Hudson River. A launch holding several figures is tethered alongside the steamboat, likely having just ferried the group of passengers ashore.
