Title The Flood - or When all Hell was Turned Loose
Description called then, fron the State Penitentiary. I remember weeks later as we passed over the bridge one day, a uniformed guard with gun drawn was guarding these convicts. I noticed one convict in particular who was shoveling rocks Into a wheel barrow. When he had a load, he picked up a big steel ball that was fastened to a four foot length of chain which was locked to his ankle. He put the ball into the wheel barrow with the rocks and walked over to dump bis load." rlSo> young people, you can understand why T will never forget the devastating floods that hit Mt. Pleasant."
