Thanks to the advent of steam in the early 18th century shallow draft boats with large paddle wheels were built that were capable of carrying both passengers and large amounts of goods.
The paddle wheels driven by enormous steam engines were mounted at the back of the boat or one on either side.
The riverboats were constantly being improved. Speed brought with it memorable competitions, with boats racing against each other to which was the fastest on the Big River. Perhaps the most famous of all the riverboat races, was the one that took place in June 1870 from New Orleans to St. Louis between the Natchez IV and the Robert E Lee. The Robert E Lee covered the 1200 miles in 3 days, 18 hours and 14 minutes, a record that still stands to this day. The Natchez took 4 days and 51 minutes.
