I was born in 1951 in Vicksburg, Ms, and grew up playing on and around the Sprague. I have been on board several hundred times from stem to stern, and everywhere in between. There was a large photo display of old Miss. river steamboats on the bottom level. I was there the night that she burned and shed a few tears for her. There was a movement to restore her after the fire, but the money never was made available. At one point in the 1960`s, during high water, she broke loose from her mooring and drifted down below the river bridge before being caught. She was used a a prop in a moviein the early 1960`s, being pushed by a towboat down the Mississippi river.
