DEEP SEA DETECTIVES: Skeleton in the Sand

The riverboat Montana was a "mountainboat" built to carry both passengers and freight in to America's Western Territories and compete with the new transportation threat - railroads.

But a trip along the Missouri River from St. Louis to Kansas City in June 1884 proved to be her last.

Brave the "Big Muddy" as we explore this queen of mountainboats and find out if she carried the seeds of her own destruction.

Our diver's communication gear allows him to share with the archaeologist who first studied the Montana.
