Summary
"The Erie Canal, one of the earliest transcendent tales of the American experience, became the nation's first great technical innovation and a gateway to prominence. In Erie: The Canal That Made America, WCNY Connected, Syracuse, New York, marks the bicentennial of the start of construction of the Erie Canal when surveyors and excavators began linking the young United States' east to its west in 1817 and depicts how a young nation broke through with its first great crusade of ingenuity by willing an impossible-to-build, 363-mile man-made waterway to the American frontier. Often credited with helping to create what America now knows as the Empire State, the story of the Erie Canal is more than a New York tale. The towpath certainly made New York City America's leading port and economic hub once the waters of the Great Lakes were wed with the Atlantic. The Erie Canal is a defining story of immigration and American culture. farmers and new citizens poured their lives into digging and developing businesses and communities along what became known as 'Clinton's Ditch.' We learn how six presidents, including Washington, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt, are linked to the canal's destiny. The documentary illustrates how the canal was a route for immense social change. Slaves fleeing the south found safe paths to freedom in Canada along the canal. The ideals of the women's rights movement and the tenets of new and renewed religions were transported along the canal. The Erie Canal lives on today as a treasured national landmark, drawing tourists from around the world to cruise its waters, bike its paths, and learn where '15 miles on the Erie Canal' can take you."--Container
