Formed from thick layers of the Mississippi river's silt deposits, the Mississippi River Valley, as shown in this high-resolution satellite image offered by Customaps, is one of the most fertile agricultural regions of the country and resulted in the river's storied steamboat era.
During the American Civil War, the capture of Mississippi by Union forces marked a turning point towards victory because of the river's importance as a route of trade and travel, not least to the Confederacy. The colored farmland in the image is located on the border of Illinois, 60 miles (96 km) south of Saint-Louis.
