Abstract : This book was prepared to commemorate the centennial of the Memphis District, United States Army Corps of Engineers. It is not designed to be a detailed history. Rather, through the use of biographical profiles, selected documents, and a chronology, Dr. Reuss outlines the role Army Engineers have played in the region the Memphis District presently encompasses. The introductory essay reminds us that the Corps of Engineers began work on the Mississippi River over 150 years ago and has for a century striven to protect Lower Mississippi Valley residents against devastating floods .
