Synopsis

Documentary about the Erie Canal. What began as "Clinton's Folly" in 1817 turned into the engineering wonder of its day -- a 363-mile water highway linking the western frontier to the Atlantic seaboard. It took eight years of construction and thousands of man-hours of brutal labor, but in the end, it turned New York City into the commercial capital of the United States.
