The first interstate Highways in early America for the commerce and transport of goods were America's big rivers. Goods were once sent on big rafts down the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi rivers to the port of New Orleans. With the invention of the steam engines, big paddle wheeled steam ships could now navigate against the current. One of the most beautiful of these ships was the famous King of the Mississippi which could be found in St. Louis and New Orleans. Riverboats were jacks of all trades. They served as highways for cotton and passenger alike. As showboats, they made the long journeys through the vastness of America a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
