Natchez TrailsMyrtle Terrace (behind you) was the home of steamboat captain Thomas P. Leathers, who commanded the steamboat Natchez in a race with the Robert E. Lee in 1870. An internationally known riverboat pilot, Leathers worked for more than fifty years and piloted seven boats with the Natchez name. He escaped death by fire on a burning boat and survived other river disasters, only to die after being struck by a bicyclist in New Orleans. Leathers and his family are buried in the Natchez City Cemetery.
