Santa Barbara Maritime Museum May Lecture Series - During the California Gold Rush, ships propelled by steam regularly carried passengers and cargo between San Francisco and Panama. One such vessel was the side-wheel steamer Winfield Scott. The steamer was en-route from San Francisco south bound to Panama with over 500 passengers and a cargo of gold and mail when it ran aground on Anacapa Island.
