Heaven’s Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal

May 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
Heaven's Ditch

Jack Kelly, Journalist, author, historian

The technological marvel of its age, the Erie Canal grew out of a sudden fit of inspiration.  Proponents didn’t just dream; they built a 360-mile waterway entirely by hand and largely through wilderness.  The Erie Canal made New York the commercial capital of America, and brought the modern world crashing into the frontier.  Jack Kelly explains the cultural upheaval created by gained and lost fortunes, in addition to the spiritual changes taking place during this time period of our nation’s history.  Book signing.
