The earthquake of 1811!!!

The time the dreaded Earthquake started was 2:00 am.

The morning of December 6th,1811. The Earthquake was so loud that it awoke people in other states. The Earthquake happened at Mississippi River Valley.

This event must have been the most frightening sequence of Earthquakes in America.

After the Earthquake people started to build back their towns and cities, but soon later two after shocks of the original earthquake hit them again on January 23,1812 and February 7th 1812. The earthquake of february 7th was the biggest. The Earthquakes were so big and so powerful they caused the Mississippi river flow backwards
