Description: 

In his account of the role the nation's "mid-continent fluvial" rivers played in its historical development, Faulkner's narrator claims that Pittsburgh (on the Ohio River) and "Fort Bridger, Wyoming, were suburbs one to the other" (83). In fact, however, Fort Bridger - a stopping point on the Oregon Trail - was on the far side of the Continental Divide from the waters that flowed into the Mississippi.
