        The Grand Excursion: Opening the Upper Mississippi River (River History Audiobook Series)

        The Grand Excursion: Opening the Upper Mississippi River

        In 1854, former president Millard Fillmore hosted a Grand Excursion. A trip to celebrate the first railroad connection all the way to the Mississippi River at Rock Island, Illinois. The journey would view the new rail line. But to also promote the opportunities in the west, Fillmore agreed to travel by steamboat all the way north into the Minnesota Territory to a newly formed city named St. Paul. The trip became the event not to be missed. More than 1,100 travelers tagged along including dozens of reporters.

        This fascinating adventure sparked the development of the Upper Mississippi River valley and expanded the growth of the nation.
