# 923 - 3¢ Steamship Savannah: plate block

The Savannah was an American hybrid sailing ship/sidewheel steamer constructed in 1818. The Savannah was the first steamship to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Although historically significant, the Savannah was not a commercial success as a steamship and was converted into a pure sailing ship for its return voyage from Europe. Scott 923 Steamship Savannah
