TitleOn the Night of the 24th of December 1855. ..
NotesOn the night of the 24th of December 1855, the Missouri river at this place was frozen over. It is now near five weeks that the river has been a highway for teams of horses, mules and oxen. We put this fact on record for coming years. We have now had near seven weeks of hard freezing--arctic weather. A season unparalleled in the history of this country. People will hereafter refer to the 'long cold winter of 1855-56'.
