O knihe

The Monongahela River (pronounced /mng'hel/, also known locally as the Mon /'mn/) is a river on the Allegheny Plateau in North-Central West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania in the United States. At Pittsburgh, it meets the Allegheny River to form the Ohio River. The word 'Monongalia' is a Latinized version of the Native American word 'Monongahela,' which means 'falling banks,' in reference to the geological instability of the river's banks. Moravian missionary David Zeisberger gave this account of the naming: In the Indian tongue the name of this river was Mechmenawungihilla, which signifies a high bank, which is ever washed out and therefore collapses.
