THE RIVER BETWEEN US: TRANSPORTATION
Engage in a discussion of the importance and impact of our Mississippi “blueway”—the river as our first inter-state national highway. The famous steamboat race between the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez was made in July 1870 from New Orleans to St. Louis, 1,278 river miles. This was won by the Lee with a time of 3 days 18 hours 14 minutes. Today, more than 90 million tons of commerce moves on the Mississippi River annually.
