River begins at Lake Itasca in Minnesota, and will travel about 2,350 miles before reaching the Gulf of Mexico. Will travel through 10 states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana. At the headwaters of the Mississippi, the average surface speed of the water is near 1.2 miles per hour - roughly one-third as fast as people walk.
At Lake Itasca, the river is between 20-30 feet wide, the narrowest stretch for its entire length.
As a major conduit of a vast interior waterway, the Mississippi River has been the object of wars, the provider for the heartland of a nation, and a cradle for cultures and communities that have grown, prospered, and died on its banks. The river's deepest section is between Governor Nicholls Wharf and Algiers Point in New Orleans where it is 200 feet deep. In his writing, Green mentions rules to what he called the "cheating game," which was then being played on Mississippi riverboats.
He soon realized that his was the first such reference to the game, and since it was not mentioned in the current American Hoyle, he chose to call the game Poker.
