Hero of the Red River

"Thirty thousand voices rose in one deafening cheer, and universal joy seemed to pervade the face of every man present."

The cheering was heard at Alexandria, Louisiana in the spring of 1864, when the first Union gunboat trapped above the rapids of the Red River passed down the chute of the newly-constructed dam.

The dam saved the most powerful battle fleet ever assembled in the Mississippi Valley, spared the failed Union advance up the Red from suffering another disastrous defeat, and brought national fame and honor to its creator.

This is the story of the man, the places and the events that made Joseph Bailey the hero of the Red River.
