Wilbur Wright flies a Wright Model A by the Statue of Liberty during the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in 1909. The celebration was to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s first entry into what was later New York Harbor as well as the centennial of Robert Fulton’s first voyage of his steamboat up the Hudson River in 1809.
The steamboat, invented by Robert Fulton, made its maiden voyage in 1807, from Albany to New York City. Shipping goods by water was now even faster, and less expensive, than by road and horse-drawn wagon. The steam engine and the new technology of the Industrial Revolution radically transformed America.
