Teraformers draining the Kankakee swamp, 1884. The boaters passed their floating dredge houses through pioneer townships. Like their seaborne counterparts, these landlocked mariners relieved themselves on booze, cabaret, gambling and prostitutes. Some left with a partner. Some of the newcomers became live-in whores for the crews, while others actually married into the dredging life, in which case the dredge boat was turned into a floating cathedral for the wedding.
