Default WW II Landing Craft

This isn't a steamboat question, but it does relate to river history.

I have heard that there was a boatyard in Leavenworth, Kansas, that built some class of landing craft during the Second World War. The story has it that these craft were driven individually down the Missouri River to St. Louis.

I have two questions about this. What type of craft were they--LS...? And once they arrived at St. Louis, were they loaded onto barges for shipment to New Orleans, (or possibly onto a railroad,) or did they continue down the Mississippi as individual vessels?

Thanks.
