Louis to the Ohio River confluence, the Middle Mississippi falls 220 feet (67 m) over 180 miles (290 km) for an average rate of . feet per mile (23 cm/km). The Mississippi River has the world's fourth-largest drainage basin ("watershed" or "catchment"). In the United States, the Mississippi River drains the majority of the area between the crest of the Rocky Mountains and the crest of the Appalachian Mountains, except for various regions drained to Hudson Bay by the Red River of the North; to the Atlantic Ocean by the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence River; and to the Gulf of Mexico by the.

The widest part of the Mississippi can be found at Lake Winnibigoshish near Bena, MN, where it is wider than 11 miles.

It is also one of the world's most important commercial waterways and one of North America's great migration routes for both birds and fishes. White settlers from Europe and the United States (and often their slaves) arrived on steamboats dispossessing the Native Americans of their lands and converting the landscape into farms and cities. Today, the Mississippi River powers a significant segment of the economy in the upper Midwest. The widest part of the Mississippi can be found at Lake Winnibigoshish near Bena, MN, where it is wider than 11 miles.

Mississippi River, the longest river of North America, draining with its major tributaries an area of approximately . million square miles (. million square km), or about one-eighth of the entire continent. Rising in Lake Itasca in Minnesota, it flows almost due south across the continental interior, collecting the waters of its major tributaries, the Missouri River (to the west) and the Ohio River (to the east), approximately halfway along its journey to the Gulf of Mexico through a vast delta southeast of New Orleans, a total distance of 2,340 miles (3, 766 km) from its source.

The Mississippi River drains about 41% of United States water. The headwaters of the Mississippi River have historically been recorded as being in Lake Itasca, in the northern part of the state of Minnesota. These are the 10 states that you would pass through if you were to travel from north to south down the river. There is some disagreement amongst geologists about whether this is really the river's beginning-some say that the headwaters might be in North Dakota-but Minnesota is generally accepted as the northernmost state that touches the river.

The Mississippi River is the chief river of the largest drainage system in North America. Flowing entirely in the United States (though its drainage basin reaches into Canada), it rises in northern Minnesota and meanders slowly southwards for 2,530 miles (4,070 km) to the Mississippi River Delta at the Gulf of Mexico. With its many tributaries, the Mississippi’s watershed drains all or parts of 31 US states and 2 Canadian provinces between the Rocky and Appalachian Mountains. From St. Paul to St. Louis, Missouri, the river elevation falls much more slowly, and is controlled and managed as a series of pools created by 26 locks and dams.
