In 1862, General Simon Buckner surrendered his Rebel forces to General Ulysses S. Grant at Fort Donelson, marking the first major Union victory. Tour this battlefield and learn about the surrender that took place in Dover, and the ramifications it had on the War Between the States.

Just thirty miles from the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, this river town became an important trading post in the 1800s. Visited by Lewis and Clark, Cape Girardeau has a storied history that resonates throughout the town, from the Trail of Tears State Park to the many outdoor murals reflecting the area's rich history.


Chester is a beautiful region of Illinois located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. This city has a diverse and storied history, beginning with the establishment of a ferry system by Jane Thomas in the early 1800s. Chester is home to Popeye's creator Elzie C. Segar and you may see the Sailor Man's likeness in the town's own six-foot-tall bronze metal statue.


This “Gateway to the West” was the epicenter for exploration following the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Now, it is the largest city visited during the cruise and has a distinct metropolitan culture. Take the elevator to the top of the Gateway Arch, which stands 630 feet over the Mississippi River.
