Docked at the waterfront downtown, Vicksburg, MS, in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.
The American Queen peeking up over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall. Notice on the murals below her stacks is a picture of the Sprague which was the largest steam stern wheel towboat ever built for inland river service. She was launched in 1901 and went into service in 1902. "Big Momma" as she was affectionately called, burned on May 15, 1974.
At the Louisiana Circle and just coming out from the mouth of the Yazoo Diversion Canal.
Close-up of the American Queen coming into the Mississippi River.
There she goes in the pouring down rain northbound to Memphis, TN.
