Shreveport, Louisiana- originally Shreve's Port. Across the river from Bossier City (pronouned Bozure City unless you're French, then it's "little stinking American city").

The Red River flows through to the Mississippi and has a deep bend at this location. The logjams of the Red River were infamous. Until Captain Shreve cleared out the log jam and made the Red River navigable. God Bless our Captain Shreve.
