Did u know the missouri river is the second largest rive in the united states?The Missouri River flows for 2,315 miles (3,726 kilometers) through the central United States. It is nearly as long as the Mississippi River, which it joins at its mouth. Together the Missouri and the Mississippi form a river system that is 3,710 miles (5,971 kilometers) long.The Missouri River begins in the Rocky Mountains of southwestern Montana. It first flows north and then turns eastward. It passes through or along the borders of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri. It meets the Mississippi River just north of Saint Louis, Missouri.


The Missouri once carried a huge amount of soil all through its course. It was called the Big Muddy because of its brown water. Today, however, dams trap much of the soil in the upper part of the river. The lower part of the river is cleaner.


Barges pushed by tugboats move cargo on the Missouri River between Sioux City, Iowa, and the river's mouth. Dams keep barge traffic from going farther north than Sioux City. The barges carry corn, soybeans, and wheat from farms in the area.


The first Europeans to see the mouth of the Missouri were the French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet, in 1673. French fur traders traveled upstream in the 1700s. The United States bought almost all the land drained by the Missouri from France in 1803. The U.S. explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark traveled up and down the river during their famous expedition of 1804–06.

The first Europeans discovered the river in the late seventeenth century, and the region passed through Spanish and French hands several times before finally becoming part of the United States through the Louisiana Purchase.The Missouri was long believed to be part of the Northwest Passage–a water route from the Atlantic to the Pacific–but when Lewis and Clark became the first to travel the river's entire length, they confirmed the nonexistence of the mythical pathway.
