The Ohio River, which streams westward from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Cairo, Illinois, is the largest tributary, by volume, of the Mississippi River in the United States. At the confluence, the Ohio is considerably bigger than the Mississippi (Ohio at Cairo: 281,500 cu ft/s (7,960 m3/s); Mississippi at Thebes: 208,200 cu ft/s (5,897 m3/s)) and, thus, is hydrologically the main stream of the whole river system. The 981-mile (1,579 km) river flows through or along the border of six states, and its drainage basin includes parts of 15 states. Through its largest tributary, the Tennessee River, the basin includes many of the states of the southeastern U.S. It is the source of drinking water for three million people. It is named in Iroquoian or Seneca: Ohi:yó, lit. “Good River” or Shawnee: Pelewathiipi and Spelewathiipi. The river had great significance in the history of the Native Americans, as numerous civilizations formed along its valley. For thousands of years, Native Americans used the river as a major transportation and trading route. Its waters connected communities. In the five centuries before European conquest, the Mississippian culture built numerous regional chiefdoms and major earthwork mounds in the Ohio Valley, such as Angel Mounds near Evansville, Indiana, as well as in the Mississippi Valley and the Southeast. The Osage, Omaha, Ponca and Kaw lived in the Ohio Valley, but under pressure from the Iroquois to the northeast, migrated west of the Mississippi River to Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma in the 17th century. In 1669, René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle led a French expedition to the Ohio River, becoming the first Europeans to see it. After European-American settlement, the river served as a border between present-day Kentucky and Indian Territories. It was a primary transportation route for pioneers during the westward expansion of the early U.S. In his Notes on the State of Virginia published in 1781–82, Thomas Jefferson stated: “The Ohio is the most beautiful river on earth. Its current gentle, waters clear, and bosom smooth and unbroken by rocks and rapids, a single instance only excepted.” During the 19th century, the river was the southern boundary of the Northwest Territory. It is sometimes considered as the western extension of the Mason–Dixon Line that divided Pennsylvania from Maryland, and thus part of the border between free and slave territory, and between the Northern and Southern United States or Upper South. Where the river was narrow, it was the way to freedom for thousands of slaves escaping to the North, many helped by free blacks and whites of the Underground Railroad resistance movement. The Ohio River is a climatic transition area, as its water runs along the periphery of the humid subtropical and humid continental climate areas. It is inhabited by fauna and flora of both climates. In winter, it regularly freezes over at Pittsburgh but rarely farther south toward Cincinnati and Louisville. At Paducah, Kentucky, in the south, near the Ohio's confluence with the Mississippi, it is ice-free year-round.

The Ohio River is formed by the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers at Point State Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From there, it flows northwest through Allegheny and Beaver counties, before making an abrupt turn to the south-southwest at the West Virginia–Ohio–Pennsylvania triple-state line (near East Liverpool, Ohio; Chester, West Virginia; and Midland, Pennsylvania). From there, it forms the border between West Virginia and Ohio, upstream of Wheeling, West Virginia. The river then follows a roughly southwest and then west-northwest course until Cincinnati, before bending to a west-southwest course for most of its length. The course forms the northern borders of West Virginia and Kentucky; and the southern borders of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, until it joins the Mississippi River near the city of Cairo, Illinois. Major tributaries of the river, indicated by the location of the mouths, include: Allegheny River – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Monongahela River – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Saw Mill Run – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Chartiers Creek – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Montour Run – Coraopolis, Pennsylvania Beaver River – Rochester, Pennsylvania Breezewood Creek – Beaver, Pennsylvania Raccoon Creek – Center Township Little Beaver Creek – East Liverpool, Ohio Wheeling Creek – Wheeling, West Virginia Middle Island Creek – St. Marys, West Virginia Little Muskingum River – Ohio Duck Creek – Marietta, Ohio Muskingum River – Marietta, Ohio Little Kanawha River – Parkersburg, West Virginia Hocking River – Hockingport, Ohio Kanawha River – Point Pleasant, West Virginia Guyandotte River – Huntington, West Virginia Big Sandy River – Kentucky-West Virginia border Little Sandy River – Greenup, Kentucky Little Scioto River – Sciotoville, Ohio Scioto River – Portsmouth, Ohio Kinniconick Creek – Vanceburg, Kentucky Little Miami River – Cincinnati, Ohio Licking River – Newport-Covington, Kentucky Mill Creek – Cincinnati, Ohio Great Miami River – Ohio-Indiana border Kentucky River – Carrollton, Kentucky Salt River – West Point, Kentucky Green River – near Henderson, Kentucky Wabash River – Indiana-Illinois-Kentucky border Saline River – Illinois Cumberland River – Smithland, Kentucky Tennessee River – Paducah, Kentucky Cache River – Illinois
