Building the Erie Canal: The Deep Cut
Pittsford Community Library
Wednesday, Jun. 28, 7:00-8:00pm
As the Erie Canal neared completion, the final push was to make the deep cut through the Niagara Escarpment. Michael McCarthy, President of  Irish American Cultural Institute in Rochester and local author, will examine the difficulties the engineers faced and how the Irish laborers contributed in making the nearly impossible task a reality. The Bicentennial Celebration of the Erie Canal is from 2017-2025. No registration required. Fisher Meeting Room.
