This report is an electronic notes compendium to We are again in the Midst of Trouble: Flooding on the Potomac River and the Struggle for Sustainability of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, 1828-1996 by Donald R. Shaffer.

Research notes from the documentary sources were compiled in electronic form as a word processing files. They consist of primarily of verbatim extracts of original documents from the National Archives, the Washington National Records Center, and other sources. The electronic notes are a chronological, documentary history of flooding and flood damage prevention activities on the C&O Canal from 1828 to 1996. The newspaper clippings and more recent park documents on flooding also were collected in a "C&O Canal Flood File."

The clippings and documents in the file are referenced and described, although not transcribed, in the electronic notes. Subjects can be searched for by performing "word searches." This type of historic material on the flood maintenance for the C&O Canal is important to have when we face similar issues.
