Yes, that is true. The treaty ending the Revolution made the Mississippi the Westerm boundary of US territory.

land north of the ohio river and west of new york

In 1787, Congress banned slavery in the new northwest territory. The territory included the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. By prohibiting slavery in the territory, it made the Ohio River the boundary between slave and non-slave states.

land north of the Ohio River and west of New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia

The Northwest Ordinance (officially called An Ordinance for the Government of the Territory of the United States, North-West of the River Ohio) established the Northwest Territory, which comprised all lands north of the Ohio River, west of the Pennsylvania border and east of the Mississippi River, which was at the time the western boundary of the United States. The Northwest Ordinance was passed by the Continental Congress in 1787 and established a system of government for the territory and declared all existing state claims to its lands to be null and void. It outlawed slavery in the territory, made provisions for public education, outlined a bill of rights, and established rules for the admission of new states that would be created out of its territory. The Northwest Territory lasted until 1803 when the state of Ohio was created out of the eastern portion of the territory and the Territory of Indiana was created out of the remainder.

The Mississippi river completely contains fresh water

Well first it's the Northwest Ordinance, second it was passed on July 13, 1787, it made one big Northwest Territory (it consisted of the lands north of the Ohio River and east of the Mississippi River). The lands would be separated into 3-5 smaller parts. The smaller territories could "petition" for "state hood" once they met the quota of about 60,000 people in the territory.

The Mississippi River is both man made and a natural resource. The river started out as a smaller one. Men created delta's that connected many rivers to create what we now know as the Mississippi River.

The Territory of Mississippi was an organized incorporated territory of the United States that existed from April 7, 1798, until December 10, 1817. The western half of the territory was admitted to the Union as the State of Mississippi on December 10, 1817.

The Spanish gained some territory along the Mississippi River and in Florida (these areas are called West Florida and East Florida, where West Florida is made of the southern areas of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana east of the Mississippi River and East Florida is made of the Florida Peninsula). The Spanish also gained control of the Balaeric Island of Minorca.

Major General Henry Wager Halleck, commander of the sector of Missouri, made up by the territory running from Missouri, through the areas east of Mississippi up to the confluence of the River Cumberland with the River Ohio. He was in charge of all warfare and Union generals in the West.

New Orleans was an important trade center near the mouth of the Mississippi River..... At least that's what I believe the answer is.

The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 outlined the boudaries of the Northwest Territory, but the Appalachian Mountains was not part of the bounday description. The Northwest Territory is made out of the region south of the Great Lakes , north and west of the Ohio River.

No. Rivers are natural features.

No.12,000 years ago the glaciers from the last Ice Age receded, flood waters carved the channel of Mississippi River.

Marquette and Joliet followed the Mississippi river south to the Arkansas river. Marquette and Joliet made their exploration trip in 1673.

Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio

Do you mean the Louisiana Territory? If you do, then its the Louisiana Purchase

At least Tennessee there may be more.

The parishes of Louisiana called the Florida Parishes were, indeed, once claimed by the Spanish as part of West Florida. Once Florida became part of the US, the coastal region was divided between Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. --- The reason the boundary of the State of Mississippi does not follow the Mississippi River to its mouth goes back to the sequence in which the United States acquired various territories. The territory north of the coastal counties in the States of Mississippi and Alabama was part of the original United States territory ceded from England at the end of the Revolutionary War. The City of New Orleans and other Parishes east of the Mississippi River near the mouth were part of the French Louisiana Territory and were not acquired until the Louisiana Purchase under President Jefferson. This area was left as part of Louisiana. Title to what is now the coastal counties of Mississippi and Alabama was disputed. The US argued that these counties were French territory and were included in the Louisiana Purchase. Spain argued that these territories were part of Spanish Florida. The matter was settled in 1821 when the United States acquired Florida from Spain. When the United State organized these new territories in to States, New Orleans and nearby parishes east of the River, were left as part of the State of Louisiana. That part of Florida between the Perdido River (the western Alabama/Florida border) and the Pearl River (the lower Louisiana/Mississippi border) were cut off from the Louisiana Territory or the Florida Territory, depending on which claim was valid and made part of the Mississippi and Alabama Territories to give the access to the coastal trade.

It's definitely possible at the (man-made) rapids at the headwaters of the Mississippi where it emerges from Lake Itasca.

The two largest tributaries are the Missouri River (west) and the Ohio River (east).Other tributaries of the Mississippi River are :Black RiverRoot RiverMinnesota RiverSt Croix RiverLa Crosse RiverWisconsin RiverRock RiverIowa RiverSkunk RiverDes Moines RiverIllinois RiverArkansas RiverObion RiverRed RiverOld RiverAtchafalaya RiverTennessee River and Cumberland River flow into the Ohio River less than 50 miles before the Junction with the Mississippi River. These two rivers along with the Ohio more or less double the size of the river at the Cairo, Illinois junction. The junction of the Missouri and the Mississippi just below St. Louis also essentially doubles the river.Old River Lock and Dam just above Angola, La. essentially blocked a large percentage of the river from flowing into the Atchafalaya Basin and it also increases the size of the Mississippi river by about a 1/3 at least. I guess theoretically the Atchafalaya is fed by the Mississippi rather than a tributary but it is important to name this river as it plays a vital role in increasing the size of the River and helping make the Mississippi Navigable by Ship up to Baton Rouge which is 235 miles up river from the Head of the Passes. This would have been impossible without dam at Old River which cut back the flow of the Mississippi River into the Atchafalaya River basin by up to as much as 50 percent.The River is Navigable by Barge from the mouth of the river to Minneapolis area. The lower river from Cairo to the mouth is about 950 miles several miles shorter than the original path thanks to cutoffs and cuts made by the Corps of Engineers. The Distance from Cairo to Dam at St. Anthony Falls at Minneapolis is 854 miles so the river is navigable for a little over 1800 miles although most barges would not go past the loading terminal near Fort Jackson or Baptiste Collete about 10 miles above the Head of the passes. However with the closure of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet the Baptiste Collete route to the east is rarely used anymore except with a single barge which can be towed if it gets rough.
