"The Marriage of the Waters": The Erie Canal and the Opening of the Midwest
- Presenter: Annette Burke Lyttle
- Date: Tuesday, July 17, 2018
- Time: 7:00 PM CST
- Webinar Description: The Erie Canal--a project many labeled hopeless and impossible--opened the Midwest to settlement and prosperity. It provided a far easier migration route to the Midwest than any of the land routes available, and it also gave settlers on the Midwestern frontier a less expensive way to get their goods and produce to Eastern markets. Learn about the building of this engineering marvel and how it affected the lives of our ancestors.
