In 1801, Fulton (1765-1815, born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania) was commissioned by Robert R. Livingston, U.S. Minister to France, to build a steamboat. After successful experiments on the Seine in France, Fulton returned to the United States and succeeded in building the first commercially successful steamboat. This boat, with the final name Clermont, steamed from New York to Albany and back between August 17 and 22, 1807. Thereafter, Fulton designed 17 steamboats, a torpedo boat and a ferry.
