The American National Red Cross, The Mississippi Valley Flood Disaster of 1927
, p. 6. Many factors account for the diverse estimates; among them is the lack of a
firm count of the hundreds of men working on the levees. When crevasses

1927 and How It Changed America (New York: Simon & Schuster/Touchstone,
1998), pp.
