The development of steam engines, starting with the Newcomen machine, meant that the traffic on the existing rivers could take place along the current of the river but also against the current. Thanks to this breakthrough invention, among other things, river passenger transport was developed, carried out by ever larger and more beautiful rear- and side-wheelers. The development of river navigation also provoked the organization of river ship races. It was the sidewall Robert E. Lee who won one of such races in 1870, because after covering 750 miles upstream between New Orleans and Saint Louis, he won with the Natchez in less than 4 days.
