Caption: Flooding on the Mississippi River, 1897. Tenant farmers stranded on a levee in Greenville, Mississippi, after flooding in April 1897 on the Mississippi River. The Mississippi, one of the longest rivers in the USA, flows over 3700 kilometres north to south across the USA. It has the third largest drainage basin in the world, and heavy rainfall can cause massive flooding further downstream, especially in the southern states of Mississippi and Louisiana. Photographed on 17th April, 1897.
