Lower Mississippi--Oxbows and Chutes

“We now turn our attention to the difficulties which embarrass the navigation of the Mississippi. These arise from the impetuosity of its current, and the almost entire absence of rock on its shores from St. Louis to New Orleans. Hence, its constant effort to change its course; and hence the frequent submersion of whole acres of land, covered with trees of the most gigantic growth.”--Army Engineers’ Report on the Ohio and Mississippi River, 1823
