Corey; You mention that the flatboats, after serving their purpose of transporting goods down the rivers from such wilderness places as Indiana, would often just be sunk, but I have also read that they were often sold for the lumber they were made of, and also that some of the older houses and buildings in New Orleans were constructed from wood of that origin.
