        Fort Peck Dam: Homestead to Waterway

        The Fort Peck dam was five times bigger than any other dam conceived at the time and contains one hundred and twenty five million cubic yards of earth.

The planned reservoir would flood recently established homesteads and local families were forced to give up their land.
