Louisiana Delta-Breton Sound and the Delta Passes

“Nothing is more certain than that the Delta has gradually risen out of the sea, or rather that it has been formed by alluvious substances, precipitated by the waters from the upper regions. It is calculated that, from 1720, to 1800, a period of eighty years, the land has advanced fifteen miles into the sea; and there are those who assert that it has advanced three miles within the memory of middle aged men.”--Major Amos Stoddard, 1814
