The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal (C&D)

St_Georges_BridgeA Quaker from Philadelphia first had the idea of digging a canal from the Chesapeake Bay to the Delaware Bay in the mid 1700s. It wasn’t until 1804 that the legislatures of Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland joinly passed legislation permitting its construction. Today it is a thriving passageway for private and cargo vessels, 17 miles long, 450 feet wide and 35 feet deep. Read about Dr. Manny’s adventure on the C&D Canal in “Will Power” – right here.
