The Big Flood

The great flood of 1927 remains the flood by which all Mississippi River floods are measured.The devastating effect upon the lower Mississippi River resulted in the Jadwin Plan, which sought to control the river with a coordinated system of levees and walls from Cape Girardeau to the Gulf of Mexico. the magnitude of the plan changed the nature of the Mississippi River and the course of American History.
