Deeper Dive: Act of Faith: The Erie Canal and Awakening of America

July 10 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Sloan Fund Deeper Dive: Act of Faith: The Erie Canal and Awakening of America

Wednesday, July 10 | 6PM | Virtual (Streamed Live at the Museum) | Free (recommended $10 donation)

The building of the Erie Canal was the most audacious engineering project of the nineteenth century, a genuine act of faith. The canal also generated innovations whose impact reverberated through the nineteenth century. Jack Kelly, author of Heaven’s Ditch: God, Gold & Murder On the Erie Canal, will talk about some of these important developments — a political party based on a murder, a reform movement that channeled the nation toward civil war, and brand-new religion with a distinctly American face. The 2024 Lecture Series is presented by the Sloan Fund.
