Jack Kelly, Heaven's Ditch: God, Gold, and Murder on the Erie Canal

Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 6:30 PM | Open to the Public | Members' Room | $10 with advance registration/$15 at the door

Heaven’s Ditch illuminates the spiritual and political upheavals along this “psychic highway” of the Erie Canal from its opening in 1825 through 1844. A page-turning narrative, Heaven’s Ditch offers an excitingly fresh look at a heady, foundational moment in American history.
