In March 1936, the greatest flood in over 300 years roared down the Connecticut River. A hard winter followed by exceptionally early, warm Spring weather unleashed an armada of icebergs that destroyed everything in its path. A huge ice jam, the like so which has not been seen in the CTt River Valley since the last Ice Age, dammed the river. When the dam finally burst, the roar was heard for miles.
