Trivia # 012


Did you know...

... that today, besides being celebrated as Independence Day
(Happy 4th!) in the US, is the birthday of the Erie Canal?
The Erie Canal was the first major human-made waterway in
the United States. It opened the western frontier by providing
a waterway between the Hudson River and Lake Erie. Work began
on the canal on July 4th, 1817.
