Rexburg in Madison County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
The Teton Dam Flood Marker
But this tragedy was turned into triumph by the victims’ own faith and courage and by of outpouring of aid by many volunteers from Idaho and nearby states, effectively coordinated by local leaders and generously supported by Ricks College, L.D.S. and other churches, Red Cross, National Guard, and the Government agencies.
Their combined efforts to rebuild the stricken areas reflect the highest ideals of American citizenship and the indomitable spirit of the Western pioneers
