It's my opinion that the economic history of Nashville dates to 1818 when the first steamboat, The General Jackson, docked on the Cumberland. For with that steamboat, modern transportation made it possible for Nashville to become the region’s shipping and distribution center. Nashville, with the Cumberland's connections to the Tennessee, Ohio and Mississippi rivers, soon ranked second only to New Orleans in importance among Southern cites." - Bob Mathews
