EDITORS COMMENTS
This lithograph from 1870 captures the thrilling moment of the Great Mississippi Steamboat Race between the Robert E. Lee and the Natchez. The race, which took place from New Orleans to St. Louis, was a spectacle that captivated audiences across America. In this print by Currier & Ives, we see the majestic steamboats battling it out on the mighty Mississippi River. The Robert E. Lee emerged victorious after an intense journey that lasted 3 days, 18 hours, and 14 minutes, culminating on July 4th, a day of great significance for Americans. The lithograph beautifully depicts this historic event with its intricate details and vibrant colors. As we gaze upon this scene, we are transported back in time to witness not only a thrilling race but also a snapshot of American history during the late 19th century. The full moon shining above adds an ethereal touch to the landscape as these magnificent vessels navigate their way through nature's waterway. This artwork is not just about transportation or maritime achievements; it symbolizes innovation and progress in American society at that time. It represents human determination and ingenuity as well as our fascination with speed and competition. Through this lithograph by Currier & Ives, we can appreciate both the beauty of artistry and historical significance intertwined within one image—a testament to how art has always been able to capture moments that transcend time itself.
