A fact from River mile appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 18 April 2008, and was viewed approximately 1019 times (disclaimer)(check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
...that river miles measure distances along a river from its mouth and are used to reference locations and to name islands?"
Most of the river appear to have milemarker 0 at the most downstream point, but the Ohio River appears to do it backwards with milemarker 0 in Pittsburgh. What's the reasoning behind that? Fxm12 (talk) 03:09, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
