(No Transcript)
The Big Ditch
  • This painting shows the "Seneca Chief," the
    flagship of a flotilla making the maiden voyage
    down the Erie Canal. The 363-mile-long, 7
    million canal opened the shortest thoroughfare
    between the Atlantic Coast's factories and the
    natural bounty of the Great Lakes, helping to
    position New York City as America's leading
  • The Canal did not greatly affect business for
    stagecoach companies, which were faster, and not
    limited by road capacity or ice, but it did
    bankrupt the Conestoga wagon freight carriers. By
    1841, however, the railroads had put stagecoach
    companies out of business. The Erie Canal still
    operates today.
