Chattanooga Ross’s Landing, Unloading Flatboats on the Banks of the Tennessee River in 1848



The craft in this view would have been built on the riverbanks of East Tennessee and loaded with produce such as corn, wheat, potatoes, preserved meat in barrels, whiskey and sometimes even coal. At certain times of the year flatboats could drift over the navigational hazards all the way to New Orleans where markets would be larger and readier.
