Feature Story

The Flood of 1927 and Its Impact in Greenville, Mississippi

The Great Flood of 1927 unleashed a spring season of catastrophic events along the banks of the Mississippi River. A weather system that stalled over the Midwestern states in the fall of 1926 brought untold amounts of water to the Upper Mississippi River region. The region’s burgeoning tributaries caused the Mississippi River to overflow in eleven states from Illinois to Louisiana.

That same system brought heavy rainfall to the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta, an alluvial plain located in northwest Mississippi. In early April 1927, Henry Waring Ball of Greenville, Mississippi, wrote in his diary:

April 8, 1927…at 12 it commenced to rain hard and I have seldom seen a more incessant and heavy downpour until the present moment – 9 p.m. I have observed that when the river is high it is always raining. The water is now at the top of the levee, and we have heavy showers and torrential downpours almost everyday and night. The air is saturated with moisture, and the luxuriance of plant growth is extraordinary. Nell went through pouring rain to the garden club.

15 The worst Good Friday I ever saw. A night of incessant storms, wind, lightning, thunder and torrents of rain. Raining constantly all this morning, none of us slept much. A day too dark and stormy to go to church or even out of doors. Discomfort. Flowers and plants beaten to the earth, little half-drowned chickens in baskets in the kitchen, house leaking in many places. Everybody in a bad humor except Jane, the cook. River appallingly high, and levees in very precarious condition. Too dark to write, another big storm coming – noon.

16 Yesterday and last night were somewhat memorable. It rained in torrents and almost without intermission for nearly 48 hours. More than 10 inches fell. A 12-inch fall is reported for Cairo. ...”

The levee breaks

The western edge of the Mississippi Delta is outlined by the Mississippi River along with its companion, a man-made levee, or earthen dam, that protects the valuable farmland from river overflow. The steady rainfall filled streams, bayous, creeks, and ditches in the Delta region and saturated the farmland. As the water rose in the Mississippi River and levees broke in other states, all indications were that 1927 would be one of the worst years for flooding.

Levee guards were placed in camps at strained sites along the top of the levee and ordered to maintain them from danger of crevasse, a break in the levee which would allow water to enter the area it protected. As the water rose on the levee, it was the levee guard’s duty to fill sandbags and place them on top of the levee in order to stay ahead of the water height.

In Mississippi there were two levee areas of special concern. Both were north of Greenville at the Miller Bend and the Mound Landing levees. A break at either of these places would allow water into the Delta town with the county’s largest population of about 15,000 people. Levee guards were on duty and the stack of sandbags were almost even with the rising water when the levee at Mound Landing in lower Bolivar County gave way on the morning of April 21, 1927.

The alarm that the levee had broken was given to the people of Greenville by a prearranged signal, the fire whistle. Many of the town’s citizens were experienced from previous floods and had prepared their homes and businesses by pulling up carpets and placing furniture and goods on raised platforms above the water that would enter their homes. Those who were less experienced immediately began fleeing the area by train and continued to do so until the tracks became unusable. The highest areas of Greenville were covered by only a few feet of water, however, the lower areas were inundated from eight feet to over rooftops.

The crevasse was so huge it allowed a volume of raging water that covered nearly one million acres with water ten feet deep in ten days. The water, higher and stronger than any previous flood, soon engulfed a large portion of the Mississippi Delta, covering some two million acres of land in its final reach. It would be a continuing flood of water — the Mississippi River flowed through the crevasse for months.

Lucy Somerville [Howorth] tells in her diary how citizens of Greenville, in anticipation of a crevasse prepared their town and homes for the flood. She wrote, “There was a low protection levee north of town. The east and south were protected, or so most people believed, by a railroad embankment. The people as a whole were confident the town would not get any water even should the levee break. For weeks the river rose, it passed the highest stage ever known before, 52.3/10 feet reached in 1922 , and went up steadily, a foot a day, which, as well as the height, was unprecedented.” To read a full account of the flood by Lucy Somerville, click here.

As the people of Greenville watched the river rise they waited for the fire alarm. Mayor of Greenville John Aloysius Cannon’s notes show the confusion among the people as the event happened on April 21, 1927. “We were somewhat late in turning on the alarm, as we could get no one at the Levee Board with the proper authority to say where the break was.”

Sixteen-year-old Mildred Shepherd was studying for her Latin exam when she heard the fire alarm. “Kid that I was, I yelled when I heard the fire whistle, ‘Hotdog! Now, I don’t have to take that Latin Exam.’ And I threw my book into the air hitting the porch ceiling . . . Adding to the excitement was a man on horseback going pell-mell down the street yelling, ‘Go to the levee! Go to the levee! The levee has broken.’”

Tent city

A refugee camp was established on the levee at the end of Washington Avenue in Greenville. Until the American Red Cross arrived, families, mostly African-Americans, slept in makeshift tents of quilts and materials brought along in their escape from their homes. When it arrived, the Red Cross passed out tents, saw that kitchens and sanitary facilities were built, and organized the large camp which would grow north along the levee for seven miles. Typhoid shots and other immunizations were given to prevent the spread of disease. Greenville’s William Alexander Percy, son of LeRoy Percy, headed the Relief Committee in Greenville. Local officials called in the National Guard to keep order.

With a sea of water in the commercial and residential areas of downtown Greenville, the town resembled Venice, Italy, with its canals. Citizens either rowed down the streets and avenues or walked on the raised walkways that were built in front of the commercial areas. The newspaper continued to operate, banks did business, and telephones and electricity remained turned on. Steamboats carried many of the white wives and young children away to Vicksburg or Memphis.

African-American families were instructed by some community leaders to stay on the levee to work in flood control and, later, recovery efforts. The men feared that if they allowed this labor force to leave they might not return. This decision to not let African- Americans evacuate and to work them without pay would soon bring an eruption of racial tensions.

Greenville’s protection levee north of town did not hold in the initial April flood. Mayor Cannon and several leaders decided to stop the continuing flow of water into Greenville and to prevent the common occurrence of a June rise, the second assault of water, from entering the town. William Beanland, a civil engineer, was chosen to handle the repair work. He immediately went to work on plans to build a mud box with driven pilings and sandbags to seal the gaps. He, with the help of a committee of African-American leaders, got about five hundred black men working two shifts around the clock for nine days to repair the protection levee.

The laborers were not paid and resented being threatened that if they did not participate in the levee repair, or other work such as unloading the food sent on barges by the Red Cross, that they would not be allowed to have the food that the Red Cross was handing out. Thus, the people struggling to live on a sliver of ground above water, became aggravated about their circumstances. Their squalid living conditions and work requirements were first reported through the Associated Negro Press and by the end of May had spread to the white press.

As word spread about the mistreatment of blacks in the levee camps, Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover, who served as chairman of a special committee to coordinate all flood relief efforts, created the Colored Advisory Committee to look into the allegations and named Robert Moton from the Tuskegee Institute to head it. After investigations, the committee presented a harsh report to Hoover, but he failed to take any action. As a result of the living conditions caused by the flood, blacks were compelled to leave Washington County, of which Greenville was the county seat, to seek better lives in the North.

Meanwhile, conditions improved in Greenville once the protection levee was finished. It prevented a second wave of rising water in June and with the aid of large pumps the town was drained. A special celebratory parade was held July 4, 1927. The floodwaters, however, would still cover the greater portion of the Delta for many more months.

The Mississippi River Flood of 1927 was the nation’s greatest natural disaster. The National Safety Council estimated deaths in the Yazoo- Mississippi Delta alone at 1,000. In Mississippi it directly affected an estimated population of 185,495. A total of 41,673 homes were flooded; 21,836 buildings were destroyed; 62,089 buildings were damaged; and 2,836 work animals, 6,873 cattle, 31,740 hogs, and 266,786 poultry were drowned. An entire crop year was lost.

A major result of the 1927 flood, which had an impact in eleven states, was the National Flood Control Act of 1928 passed by the U. S. Congress.

A closing glimpse

The teenager Mildred Shepherd, whose father was an auditor for Mississippi Power & Light Company in Greenville, remained with her family at home throughout the flood with water at the top of their doorsteps. She writes about life after the waters left and gives a glimpse of her everyday life.

“As the waters receded people drifted back to their homes to clean up and continue their lives where they left off. One day after the waters had dropped to a depth of about a foot, Teddy (who was three years old) wanted to wade using Daddy’s knee boots. Mama stood on the steps and agreed to let him wade on the front walk. She cautioned Ted to be careful and he said, ‘I am, Mama. I’m holding to my pants.’

“The flood took its toll on the trees and shrubs. Aunt Ruby lost her fruit and nut trees, purple plums, peaches and apples along with an English walnut tree which was an oddity of this particular section of the country.

“It was the mode of the times for yards to be outlined by carefully clipped privet hedges. Our side of the street featured a hedge beginning at MP&L Co. corner and continuing to the corner of Clay and included Uncle Clarence’s and Aunt Ruby’s property. Popa Ed Lenz’s hedges was clipped to form an arch over the walk way to his front door. Mocking birds often nested in the arch. The flood killed the hedges and they had to be removed.”

I am still baffled...Yesterday, a film crew barged into our polling place and started filming. My counterpart, another Judge of Elections, stood in front of the camera and demanded that they stop filming. They said they had the right to be there by the First Ammendment. As we escorted them out, we told them that the First Ammendment ends 10 feet from the entrance to the polling place. Then they said they had been given permission by the County Board of Elections. When we checked with the Board, we told them to leave at once because they had been deceptive (they lied). I can't for the life of me understand what this organization had hoped to discover or cover in our tiny little town...

I had posted a copy of their business cards here, but the owner of the image suggest we not share it... When I removed the photo of their cards, I forgot to tell you where they were from... They were from the Al Jazeera Network. The reporter was Tom Ackerman, and if you Google his name, you'll see he is one of their lead International "English Speaking" reporters. So...What's up with that? Why such a little tiny town like ours? Anybody have any clues?

 Sometimes, the truth
doesn't hurt
so bad.
 
 
A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was
nicely made and everything
was picked up.
Then he saw an envelope,
propped up prominently
on the pillow that
was addressed
to 'Dad'.

With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope 
with trembling
hands as he read
the letter. 


Dear Dad: 

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing this to you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted
to avoid a scene with
you and Mom. 

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But, it's not only the
passion, Dad...she's
pregnant. 

Stacy said that we will be very happy. 

She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood that will last the whole winter.
We share a dream of having many more children. 

Stacy has opened my eyes
to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. 
We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine, ecstasy and other pills. 

In the meantime, we will pray that science
will find a cure for AIDS so
Stacy can get better.
She deserves
it. 

Don't worry, Dad. I'm 15, and
I know how to take
care of myself. 

Someday, I'm sure we will be back to
visit so you can get to know
your grandchildren. 


Love, Your Son,
John 



PS. Dad. None of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. 


I just wanted to remind you that there are
worse things in life than a Bad Report
card, which is in my center
desk drawer. 


I love you. 


Call me when it's safe to come home...

The Meaning of the Flag Draped Coffin




I hope you take the time to read this and to understand what the flag draped coffin really means... This is how to understand the folding of the flag that is laid upon the coffin before it is surrendered to so many mothers, fathers, widows, widowers and children.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?



Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was only to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but
the following will equip you to know the symbolism behind each fold.

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of
life
.
The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life.
The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.


The 4th fold represents the
weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God , it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.


The 5th fold is a
tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, "Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong."


The 6th fold is for
where people's hearts lie . It is with their heart that They pledge allegiance to the flag of the United! States Of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a
tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.



The 8th fold is a
tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.


The 9th fold is a
tribute to womanhood, and Mothers . For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a
tribute to the father , for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.



The 11th fold
represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.



The 12th fold
represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.



The 13th fold, or when the flag is
completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding them of their nations motto, "In God We Trust."



After the flag is
completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

In the future, if you ever have the privilege of witnessing the folding of the flag, you will know why there is so much care in each individual fold, and perhaps you'll have a better understanding of the individual lying under the flag who so unselfishly gave all...

                                Jails and Nursing Homes

Let's reverse the two. Why don't we put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes. This would correct two problems in one motion.  

                          Here's the way it would work:

For Seniors:

 

Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc.

They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance.  

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.  

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.

All meals and snacks would be brought to them.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.  

They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education...

Free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.  

Simple clothing - ie., shoes, slippers, pj's

Legal aid would be free upon request.  

There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens.  

Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost.

They would receive daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.  

The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.



As for the criminals:

They would receive cold food.  

They would be left alone and unsupervised.

They would receive showers once a week.

They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.  

They would have no hope of ever getting out. EVER!

 

                                                  What a concept!

                                         "Sounds like justice to me!"

Patricia, There are only a couple of places I have found online copies of various GHS yearbooks. One is Ancestry.com. They only have the following years, however: 62, 63, 65, 66, 72, 73, 74, 75, & 76 . Why no '64, I don't know. Like most everything these days, they do require a paid membership. I believe their's is $165 a year for the basics.

Another place to check periodically is at ebay. If you're in the Dallas area, they should have a large enough library which should house vast numbers of genealogical resource reference books, including high school yearbooks. If not, ask if they maintain a membership with Ancestry.com. Some libraries also offer to acquire books from other libraries on a loaner basis. Who knows? They may even have our yearbooks on their shelves. Lots of Greenvillians in Texas these days as you may know.

Good luck, dear....

Anne, It looks as though you may have joined the wrong school website. This website is for those who attended Greenville High School in Greenville, Mississippi. Did you perhaps go to school in Greenville, South Carolina? Here's a link to GHS there where an Anne Timmons (White) is listed as a former Class of 1965 classmate:

As far as I can see, Classcreator.com only list one class from GHS in Greenville, South Carolina and that being the Class of 1979. Best of luck, Anne...

Sincerely, Robert
