New Orleans and the Mississippi Monster

New Orleans is a city that has known its share of triumph & tragedy. Nowhere is this more clear than in its contentious relationship with the many-tentacled Mississippi Monster. Initially content to live in the high river waters of Missouri, the monster had by the late 19th century migrated south to New Orleans, where it caused considerable havoc with the fishing and shipping industries.
