Up and down the river, communities hadn’t waited for LBJ’s lightning visit to push people and resources to the limit to fight the coming flood. Air Force One had long disappeared into the low-hanging clouds above St. Paul when U. S. Corps of Engineers technical consultant Arthur Johnson urged Winonans to make “the supreme effort” as men and machines swarmed like so many ants to raise the...
