Farmers in Missouri floodway race to salvage growing season
In May the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers used explosives to breach levees in the Birds Point New Madrid Floodway to lower floodwater on the levee protecting Cairo, Illinois. When the levee was breached it flooded 130,000 acres of fertile Mississippi County and New Madrid County farm land. Most of the floodwater has now receded from the land and farmers are surveying the damage and rushing to get new crops planted.

In January 1861, Claiborne Fox Jackson, Missouriís new governor and a slaveholder, schemed to push Missouri into the Confederacy.
He fished from state files a bill that had failed in the Legislature the year before. It proposed managing the city police with a Board of Police Commissioners, modeled after Baltimoreís supposedly progressive system. Jackson liked the clause that let the governor appoint commissioners in St. Louis, a city that backed Lincolnís election.
