Errors?[edit]

This page has serious errors, the first of which is confusing father with son. Charles Rivers Ellet was the son of Charles Ellet, Jr. who was the famous hydrologist. This section which I exceised:

Ellet published a Report of the Overflows of the Delta of the Mississippi River, which helped to reshape New Orlean's waterfront. George Perkins Marsh published Man and Nature fourteen years later, but it was Ellet who first noted in writing that the artificial embankments created an overflowing delta. It would be decades later that his assertions were taken seriously and used in flood control decisions.[1]

should be put in an article about him. A reference I found is:

I moved information to Charles Ellet, Jr. page. I have changed the redirect for Charles Ellet to the father. Moheroy 11:33, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
