    This is the crumbling Hales Bar Navigation Lock Dec. 19, 2013, on the bank of the Tennessee River in Jasper, Tenn. Hales Bar Dam opened in 1913 and the project was the first to provide hydropower in the world. The dam ceased operations in 1968 when Nickajack Dam opened a few miles downstream. One hundred years later, the region looks back and remembers life at Hales Bar Dam and Navigation Lock. (USACE photo by Leon Roberts)
