“This Very Spot” by The Mississippi River

Photograph of readable sign listing some of the famous people that have come past the Pentagon Barracks location in Baton Rouge, Louisiana via the Mississippi River.

“Look over the water and back across time. Do you hear the paddling of Native American dug-outs? Thunderous volleys of the Civil War gunboat pictured above? Perhaps Mark Twain paddling a paddle-wheeler or P.T. Barnum beckoning with his showboat’s calliope? Maybe the explorer LaSalle, a young Abe Lincoln, or nature artist J.J. Audubon, who all sailed past this very spot. Listen and you’ll hear the history of America echo on the currents of this river.
