Publicado: 1 year ago
Two hundreds years ago, construction began on a 363-mile canal linking the Great Lakes to the Hudson River and New York City - an engineering and commercial triumph as revolutionary as the Internet. But the Erie Canal was dismissed at first. New York politician DeWitt Clinton spent 10 years fighting to sell the project to a deeply skeptical public, and Presidents Jefferson and Madison refused to help fund it. Yet the canal quickly changed the geography and commerce of the young nation. Richard Schlesinger reports on the history of the Erie Canal, still celebrated in song as an example of American ingenuity.

Last summer I paddled from south buffalo to brockport. Two thirds of it was on the canal, it was awesome. Camped on the towpath, a wide water, and someone’s backyard. This year I’m continuing by taking my god son from brockport to Rochester on one trip and another one going east from Rochester.

I read somewhere that they used canon fire for the opening ceremony, positioning canons within earshot from each other from buffalo to NYC and firing them off consecutively begining in buffalo. It took an hour and a half to complete the procession. I thought that was kinda cool. Communication has come along way, but that must have been a marvel back then.

Why don't these stories include the rest of the Erie canal? I live in Southwest Ohio, about 600 feet from the Erie canal, and we have locks here, and an original boat that was actually used on the canal for transport. Surplus stone blocks from the locks construction was found on my property a few years ago.

Great engineering achievement. Thanks for sharing.

The Clinton of the 19th Century, concerned about commerce and peoples well being. The Clinton of the 20th Century, concerned about getting his rocks off in the mouth of young women. What a difference. And now I can see what a miracle it was for America to have evolved and developed into such a Great Country.

Went down the canal in a houseboat with my family in the 60's from Buffalo to the Finger Lakes. Should have seen my Dad swear when we hit the wall at one of the locks.

Wish the canal was used more, it would take some heavy lifting and alleviate the roads; but would move too slowly now for this century. But an enviable piece of construction under budget.

terryfriend16 it can still make economic sense for bulky relatively low cost cargo like aggregate, coal etc. One barge can carry the same as a dozen trucks or more, using less fuel.

You can cruise the Erie Canal with Blount Small Ship Adventures. They do 14 trips from NY to Canada and 16 day trips from New York to Chicago. www.blountadventure.com

I was born in Little Falls, the Highest Lift lock, Lock 17, on the Canal. Later grew up in Rochester, and lived also in Albion & Brockport all along the canal. Nice historical piece.

1 year ago

Great story. Grew up in Seneca Falls. Spent many a day down by the locks as a kid watching with amazement as the water filled and the boats passed thru. My mom worked on the Women's Hall of Fame in what is now a National Park in Seneca Falls honoring all women's achievements as well as the suffrage movement. Worth a visit if you are traveling in Upstate NY.

We should improve and expand the USA inland waterways and create new connections. For example, a new canal could be built to connect Lake Superior to the Mississippi River via the Saint Croix River. Reconstructing and expanding the old Ohio and Erie Canal could connect Lake Erie to the Ohio River to allow more traffic than it ever had in the past. Height limits from bridges could be raised or eliminated along all the waterways by adding lift bridges to allow taller ships to navigate more areas. Canals could be widened and deepened. Locks could be upgraded for faster and easier travel. Navigation and access improvements could improve travel times and reduce costs to make transport along the waterways more attractive again.

A nice summary of history and the importance of the Erie Canal. Far Better than what I was taught in school. One last note, Seneca Falls was the model for Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life.

Help me somebody! The pictures all seem to show the animals pulling the barge from one side of the canal. But wouldn't that pull the barge against the bank as well as down the canal? I have this mental picture of those poor animals dragging the barge against the bank for the whole trip.

Dennis - They had couple of employees on the boat. There was always someone to steer. The problems that did occur was when two boats approached from each direction. Certain rules applied and there was a specific method to get the two boats around each other.

I grew up in MN was fascinated with the song. After 40 years in CT I finally drove up to see the canal July 3rd. Never saw a hint that the 4th 2as it's 200th Birthday! Had a wonderful tour. This video adds much more! THANKS!

Do you want to know why it was ahead of schedule and under-budget? Because the government had nothing to do with it.

Yeah definitely, or maybe the fact that there were no labor laws to govern safety, quality, etc.

I live in the Binghamton NY area. The canal system use to run from Utica to Binghamton . Today nothing exists of from the canal system here other that the street that was filled in and called Water St. In a neighboring town there is a stretch of canal about a mile long that was abandoned when the rail road went through. It's on private property and faces being filled in and having corporate America built on it.Between Binghamton and Utica mostly all you see is historic markers designating that the canal once ran through there. In a town 30 miles away there is a small section of the canal visible but other than a sign saying what it is, it's just a grassy 100 yards long dirt pile

In a side note Clinton planned another canal from Lake Erie to the Ohio River at Cincinnati he went so far as to acquire land on Lake Erie and have his partner a surveyor named Ezekiel Haines lay out a town but with the coming of the railroad it now being impractical and no investors could be found.The town that eventually had people settle there was named Port Clinton,Ohio either in his honor or because he was a politician by himself for his vanity.

With respect to Mayor Warren, Rochester was already a boomtown before the canal ran through it. Our foundation, and reason for growth and success, was and continues to be the Genesee River.

My wife and I went to Lockport last year and took the boot up the canal. Nice town and a cool boat ride. The owner of the B&B we stopped at on the trip joked there was one dead Irishman for every mile of the canal.

It's far from the most authentic canal song Robert, if we're talking about folk songs that were in use in the 19th century on the canal, but it's certainly the most well known Erie Canal song today. More here, if you're interested: http://daveruch.com/erie-canal-song/

yeah, it's amazing how far you can go on the canal system - they have four offshoots one goes down to the two large Finger Lakes, Cayuga and Seneca. People I know who live on the canal in Pittsford said the big boats pass by in the fall to take their boats to the Finger Lakes for the winter storage , in the summer the boats anchor on the lakes and swim and recreate- they have many marinas - the other offshoot is at Albany north to Lake Champlain up the St Lawrence Seaway and to Montreal. You can boat for miles on the canal system today.

A great story

American ingenuity? Great Britain has had canals and locks for many, many centuries. How about using that ingenuity in American education.

1 year ago

The Erie Canal was the longest canal built since China's Grand Canal was completed around A.D. 600. For a fledgling nation to attempt this, and for such a long canal constructed across a vast wilderness, this could surely be described as "ingenuity"—whether American or otherwise. Moreover, this video made no claim about the U.S. vs. Europe in regard to ingenuity, canal engineering, or anything else.

Matt The total miles of English canals is much longer and goes just about everywhere. Hence all the narrowboats that people travel and live on in England. Can't do that in the US...the canals here don't connect unless it's with a river and most of those are not for the narrowboat life. Watch some of the narrowboat videos on YouTube. The canal maps are incredible.

The US is much much larger than England and its canals much longer

2:50 - "Completed in just eight years."
California has had a fully staffed "Department of High-Speed Rail" since 1995 and not one foot of track has been laid.
People are retiring from the department, with full pensions, never producing one thing the Department was set up to do.

Remember this when you look forward to socialized medicine or anything the government says it will provide for you.

The high speed rail project is a lot more complicated and has thus far yielded one new bridge. Our wonderful healthcare system in the U.S. allows for 45,000 deaths per year.

It produced cushy government jobs and probably got a career boost for the person who started it. So it produced exactly everything it was set up to do.

there are always people with "vision". more recent examples are the interstate highway system, the electric grid, the cellular network, the internet.

even right now there are groups out there trying to implement things like the hyperloop and space tourism and colonizing mars (a dumb idea, but one requiring vision).

and all of those are just examples of vision from within the same sort of infrastructure space that spawned the canal.

Several years ago, while spending a few days at Niagara Falls, we took a side trip to Lockport and toured a portion of the canal. For me it was an eye-opener. I'd known about the canal since grammar school, but the engineering achievement of canal and its impact on our nation had, until that moment, been lost on me.

Definitely 20th century. "After an idle year in 1916, the boats made a last mule-drawn trip to Albany with lumber. But ice caught them on the way back, and they were left to winter at Frankfort, near Utica."

Quoted from the following source: http://buffalonews.com/1990/06/03/canal-boatman-remembers-the-long-haul-from-albany-to-buffalo-childhood-on-old-erie-was-an-adventure/

It seems like the the horse ... mule ... power survived well past the first American Industrial Revolution and just past the start of the first World War.

Any idea what decade that would have been? I didn't think mules were used after the 19th century.
