History Today: Life on the Mississippi

I have a long article on the Mississippi in the September issue of History Today (Vol. 69, Issue 9). It was great to use some of the research for Deep Water in this way, and their production values are a delight, as you can see below! At least for now, it's available here

History Today: The Big Uneasy

History Today, August 2011
My article on New Orleans and its historic relationship with disasters of one kind and another is up now on the History Today website, and out in print next week. It was a pleasure to write, and they've done a lovely job with the illustrations. I think it pinpoints a lot of things in miniature that I touch on in depth in Southern Queen. So enjoy! Below, further information about some of the figures that I mention, and links to some of the sources that I used.
