The Delaware and Hudson (D&H) Canal system was built in the 1820's and carried anthracite coal from the mines in Pennsylvania to Kingston, NY to meet the Hudson River, and thereby, the rest of the world. In 1825, when natural cement was discovered near High Falls, NY, that material was used to build the canal as well as the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty.

The Canal ran for 108 miles, with 108 locks used to raise and lower the boats as they worked their way toward the Hudson River. For 70 years, (1828 to 1898), this canal system not only linked the mines of Pennsylvania with the Hudson and the rest of the world, but also encouraged the birth of new town and villages along its route.

Amazingly, this project was completed in fewer than three years using only picks, shovels, draft animals, and blasting powder.

Dies ist ein Überblick von USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
