Charles W. Morse is a notorious character, whose name is still well-recognized in Bath and around the state of Maine. He made millions in the ice trade in the late nineteenth century (a major industry in Maine at the time that helped spur its economic development), created and worked in an important company that created steamboats and tugboats, and was later blamed for the financial panic of 1907, earning the disdain of Theodore Roosevelt, William Randolph Hearst, JP Morgan, and Mark Twain. His story unites many important industries and movements in Maine's history, and also connects them to the larger narrative of American innovation and inventiveness.
