Quinta Scott's Mississippi River Photographs

Upper Mississippi--Islands and Sloughs

“Here we are, then, on this so renowned River, all of whose peculiar features I have endeavored to note carefully. The Mississippi River Takes its rise in various lakes in the country of the Northern Nations. It is narrow at the place where Miskous empties; its Current, which flows southward, is slow and gentle. To the right is a large Chain of very high Mountains, and to the left are beautiful lands; in various Places, the stream is Divided by Islands. On Sounding, we found ten brasses of Water. Its Width is very unequal; sometimes it is three quarters of a league, and sometimes it narrows to three arpents."--Pere Jacques Marquette, 1673
