    St Louis Bridge - Rails across the Mississippi: A HISTORY OF THE ST. LOUIS BRIDGE
    Rails across the Mississippi: A HISTORY OF THE ST. LOUIS

    St Louis Bridge

    An absorbing tale of grand dreams, shady politics, daring engineering experiments, greed, ambition, and westward expansion, Rails across the Mississippi is the first book-length history since 1881 to document the planning, financing, and construction of the first bridge across the Mississippi River at St. Louis, a national engineering landmark completed in 1874 that is now known as the Eads Bridge. Robert W. Jackson takes a fresh look at this monumental project, dispersing the myths and filling in the gaps left by earlier scholarship. When James B. Eads outlined his plan for a bridge over the Mississippi River at St. Louis, critics said that the genius did not exist in the country capable of erecting such a structure. Instead of the tried-and-true iron truss bridge, Eads--who was not a trained engineer and had no experience designing or building bridges--proposed a radical design that shattered engineering precedent: an arch bridge longer than any in existence using steel, a material thought unsuitable for long-span bridges by virtually every engineer in America and Europe. Rails across the Mississippi explores how Eads took on the task of building the bridge as he envisioned it and how he met the obstacles presented by his tenacious fidelity to that vision. Jackson describes the...

            St Louis Bridge - East St. Louis Precinct Mississippian Features
            East St. Louis Precinct Mississippian

            St Louis Bridge

            The American Bottom and its associated uplands were home to the largest and most populous Mississippian period (AD 1050-1400) center ever to exist in North America. This complex, Greater Cahokia, consisted of the Cahokia, East St. Louis, and St. Louis precincts, all major mound complexes with intense habitation, as well as the many smaller interspersed mound, village, and farmstead sites whose inhabitants shared a rich and interconnected religious and political life. Previous large-scale projects and targeted investigations at the Cahokia Precinct provided a wealth of data on the developmental history and ultimate decline of Mississippian culture in the region. The results of the 2008-2012 investigations at the East St. Louis Precinct for the construction of the New Mississippi River Bridge (NMRB) add greatly to it. This NMRB archaeological project uncovered a total of 6,435 precolumbian features spanning the Terminal Late Woodland (TLW) to Mississippian periods. These revealed the region's largest recorded TLW settlement (which is covered in a subsequent volume) and an even larger Mississippian one that developed, in part, from it but also far exceeded it in size, complexity, and its ability to draw diverse peoples to a single place in order to participate in novel lifeways and ...
