Science now reveals the true cause of the dam breach flood that
destroyed Johnstown in 1889. The tragic loss of more than 2200
lives was preventable; the initial investigation of the flood was
hijacked, delayed, and distorted by powerful members of the
industrial elite. This book bridges the gap between history and
science, reexamining eyewitness accounts of the flood and historic
documents about the investigation, and applying new LiDAR, GPS, and
hydraulic studies to solve the mystery - what caused the Great
Flood of 1889? The book includes a notable chapter on the "sister"
of the South Fork Dam, "The Forgotten Dam" at Hollidaysburg, PA.
