The Lost Graves of the Morganza Floodway

In this article the writer alludes to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers not actually moving bodies, just headstones. Morganza natives Mr. Felton Minor and Rev. Cleveland Richard of Bright Morning Star Baptist Church said that the Corps did try to move the bodies but is some cases there was no body to be moved. Burial procedures and other conditions caused the fairly rapid deterioration of a corpse.
