Abstract: A side-scan sonar survey was conducted of the Upper and Lower Bailey’s Dams, which are submerged structures located in the Red River at Alexandria, Louisiana. These structures were built of timber, trees, and stone fill during the US Civil War and have historical significance. Example sonographs were obtained for the previously documented Lower Bailey’s Dam to illustrate various dam features. A reconnaissance survey was the area suspected to contain Upper Bailey’s Dam. Several good sonograph images were obtained from this area and used to identify the probable position and condition of the upper dam. A number of example sonographs are included in this report along with a general discussion on the use and limitations of side-scan sonar for similar applications.
