Light List Data:
Through the middle of the Mississippi River Delta flows South Pass, which in the 1830s became the preferred entrance to the Mississippi. Before that, South Pass had long been known, but was unlit and therefore difficult to navigate. In 1682, La Salle planted his marker there. Evidence seems to show that South Pass may even have been preferred as early as 1720, but the French fortified and lit Northeast Pass instead due to the needs of parallel navigation.
