Flood of 1913: Centennial Commemoration Gallery

Folks: thanks once again to everyone for making this spring and the Centennial of the 1913 Hamilton Flood a memorable success!  The organizers, volunteers, and participants who took part are a tribute to this community’s spirit, and the Michael J. Colligan History Project was honored to share in the historical commemoration.Although the events program is over, the centennial itself is worthy of remembering. To that end, Hamiltonian Jack Armstrong (a notable Flood Commemoration volunteer) captured a magnificent gallery of the 2013 Centennial Commemoration, which we are now proud to add as a permanent feature of our 1913 Flood webpage. All photographs were taken this spring from March 12 through May 4, and can be viewed by clicking on the link below:Flood of 1913: Centennial Commemoration Gallery
