Mississippi River

About

The Mississippi River, the largest river system in North America, forms Kentucky's western border.   Western Kentucky is known as the region of four rivers since the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers join the Ohio River near it's confluence with the Mississippi.  This area played a key role in the CIvil War since both sides needed to control river traffic.
