Brought to life by building at the Red River and the Texas Trail in 1836, the city of Shreveport greatly suffered from this project as it converted the area of the modern city into a cluster of construction waste. Change came when Captain Henry Miller Shreve cleared the waters of the Red River from debris and since then the city has acquired pretty forms. Consequently, it was incorporated on March 20, 1839.
Today Shreveport thrives on the fortunes of its waterfront location and despite the Red River being off-limits for usage due to polluted waters in 1914, it is back to normal again and Shreveport earns money on shipping. Once introduced to the world as a city with industrial face, Shreveport is world away from heavy business today and instead it is known to the public eye for its historical landmarks.
