Description

This reproduction depicts a steamboat race along the Mississippi River. Three steamboats sail into the foreground, with dark clouds of smoke and embers trailing from the smokestacks. 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.
