|The Mississippi Queen Catfish Mermaid|
Did you know In the year A.D. 1250, the ancient metropolis of Cahokia, Illinois, was home to more people than London. I imagine in that year the Native Americans knew all about the Mississippi Queen Catfish mermaid. She's been there all along, and earned her title as the Queen of All Mermaids. The Mighty Mississippi. You can cross it in St. Louis, Memphis, then again in New Orleans.
It takes 90 days for a drop of water to travel the entire length of the Mississippi River. The Mississippi River is home to 360 species of fish, and the Mississippi Queen mermaid presides over all of them. The deepest place on the Mississippi River is 200-feet deep and is located near Algiers Point in New Orleans, and that is where she holds court. But you have an equal chance of seeing her in St. Paul, Davenport, St. Louis, Baton Rouge, or La Crosse, Wisconsin. Almost nothing is more American than that.
