In Henry Lewis, Das Illustrirte Mississippithal. Düsseldorf: Arnz & Comp., 1857, p. 30.

Artist Henry Lewis sketched and painted scenes along the upper Mississippi River between 1846 and 1848. He compiled them into a panoramic painting nearly half a mile in length, which was a popular theater attraction in the U.S. and Europe. Later he settled in Germany where he published a book based on his panorama. He began at the Falls of St. Anthony in Minnesota, which became the site of Minneapolis.
