Description

This reproduction depicts a steamboat race along the Mississippi River. Three steamboats sail into the foreground with their tall smokestacks rising into the night sky with dark clouds of ashy smoke and embers trailing from the tops. A fourth boat approaches in the background. On the banks of the river, a crowd of gentlemen cheer and wave their hats around a bonfire as they come near. A bright full moon illuminates the scene.
