UW La Crosse Historic Steamboat Photographs
The pilot is holding a hat which faintly reads Lee Line. The STACKER LEE was affectionately called STACK-O-Dollars since she made the Lee Line alot of money. Stacker Lee was the younger brother of James Lee Jr. and had a completely different temperment than his older brother. Sometime during one of the Yellow Fever outbreaks Stacker became infected but survived. The book Memphis Down in Dixie has quite a bit to say about Stacker. The STACKER LEE was built quite a while after Stacker died.
