Historical Information

The first highways in America were the great rivers, which permitted the growth of commerce and transport. The advent of steam and a brilliant idea of Fulton and Livingston, first builders of riverboats, permitted the upstream navigation on rivers. Mark Twain was fascinated by these vessels. His book, Life on the Mississippi, chronicles his time as an apprentice pilot aboard a riverboat.
