Developed by the Indiana Historical Society in partnership with the Rivers Institute at Hanover College, the exhibition commemorates the 2011 bicentennial of the inaugural voyage of the New Orleans, the first steamboat to navigate the Ohio River. The curriculum guides and a companion time line explore the ways this event affected the economy, technology and culture of the Midwest and the United States.
