Mississippi Steamboat

Steamboats played a major role in the 19th-century development of the Mississippi 
River and its tributaries by allowing the practical large-scale transport of 
passengers and freight both up- and down-river. Using steam power, riverboats 
were developed during that time which could navigate in shallow waters as well as 
upriver against strong currents. After the development of railroads, passenger 
traffic gradually switched to this faster form of transportation, but steamboats 
continued to serve Mississippi River commerce into the early 20th Century.
The Mississippi is one of the world’s great rivers. It spans 3,860 miles of 
length as measured using its northernmost west fork, the Missouri River, which 
starts in the Rocky Mountains in Montana, joining the Mississippi proper in the 
state of Missouri. The Ohio River and Tennessee River are other tributaries on 
its east, and the Arkansas, Platte and Red River of Texas on the west. The 
Mississippi itself starts at Itasca Lake in Minnesota, and the river wends its 
way through the center of the country, forming parts of the boundaries of ten 
states, dividing east and west, and furthering trade and culture.
Vessels were made of wood—typically ranging in length from 40 to nearly 300 feet  
in length, 10 to 80 feet  wide, drawing only about one to five feet of water 
loaded, and in fact it was commonly said that they could "navigate on a heavy 
dew." The boats had kingposts or internal masts to support hogchains, or iron 
trusses, which prevented the hull from sagging. A second deck was added, the 
Texas Deck, to provide cabins and passenger areas. All was built from wood. 
Stairs, galleys, parlors were also added. Often the boats became quite ornate 
with wood trim, velvet, plush chairs, gilt edging and other trimmings sometimes 
featured as per the owner's taste and budget. Wood burning boilers were forward 
center to distribute weight. The engines were also amidships, or at the stern 
depending on if the vessel was a sternwheeler or sidewheeler. Two rudders were 
fitted to help steer the ship.
Vessels, on average, only lasted about five years due to the wooden hulls being 
breached, poor maintenance, fires, general wear and tear, and the common boiler 
explosion. Early trips up the Mississippi River took three weeks to get to the 
Ohio. Later, with better pilots, more powerful engines and boilers, removal of 
obstacles and experienced rivermen knowing where the sand bars were, the figure 
was reduced to 4 days. Collisions and snags were constant perils.
