Unloading Bananas, Port of New Orleans, c1903
Due to its strategic location at the base of the Mississippi River, the Port of New Orleans emerged in the early 1800s as one of the world's largest and most important shipping ports. By 1840, thanks in large part to its role in shipping cotton, the South's cash crop, it was the world's fourth busiest port. It faltered by the latter half of the 19th century due first to the yellow fever outbreak and then to the onset of the Civil War.
