It was America’s greatest public works project and it gave us the very first “crime of the century,” along with wild treasure hunts and a parade of fanatics, mystics, and hoaxers. Yes, it’s the Erie Canal. A new book by author Jack Kelly entitled Heaven’s Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal, tells how the canal changed the nation and generated wild excitement in the process. You can join Kelly for a talk and discussion about the book.
