By Jeannette Holland Austin Profile
The "Prometheus", a small stern-wheeler was built by Otway Burns, a naval hero and privateer in the War of 1812. It was the third such boat in the region to steam down the Cape Fear River between Wilmington and Smithville. However, the vessel could not stand against the strong coastal currents at the mouth of the river and was retired several years later, but not before ferrying President James Monroe from Wilmington to Smithville.
