VIDEO | Nearing the Illinois border: Fort Jefferson Cross at the Confluence

August, 2021 – Headed north on Hwy 51 to the Mississippi River and crossing from Kentucky into Illinois in 11 miles or so.

The road turned into a huge hill and at the top, there was this lovely reward.


It is the site of Fort Jefferson overlooking the Vast Mississippi River and the cross has to be 5 stories high. Simply Awesome!

From RoadsideAmerica.com: 95 feet tall and made of metal, perched on a bluff overlooking the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. It reminds river boaters just whose religion is in charge on the Kentucky side.

Have I not commanded you? …  Be strong and courageous. … Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9
