What was going on 100 years ago this week? CLICK HERE for a link to the St. Tammany Farmer Issue of July 7, 1920. The link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service.
Most of the issue was devoted to arguments for and against putting in a drainage plan for St. Tammany Parish. That would involve drainage districts, drainage surveys, cooperation among landowners, and the most controversial part, drainage improvements taxes.
