More than being the largest tributary of the Mississippi River, the Ohio River played a large role in America's early history. Serving as a border for six eastern states today, the Ohio River was once seen as a boundary line between Indian territory and Kentucky. During the mid 1800s, the Ohio marked the line between free and slave states, thought as an extension of the Mason-Dixon Line. Because of its westerly flow, the Ohio naturally encouraged a western pioneer movement. Settlers would then continue north on the Mississippi River, and eventually reaching the Missouri River, their avenue to the northwest.
