A batteau (plural “batteaux”) is a wooden riverboat used to move people and supplies down river during log drives.

Batteaux were the “utility trucks” of the Eighteenth Century, and allowed travel and the transport of goods into areas where no roads existed. General George Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River in Batteaux , and the ill-fated Arnold Expedition, led by General Benedict Arnold, used batteaux to move their troops and supplies up the Kennebec River on the way to Quebec.
