Stewarts Canal - Harriet Tubman's Eastern Shore of Maryland
USA

Stewarts Canal 

Around 1850, John Stewart had his slaves, along with some free laborers, build a canal from the woods to his mill near the Bay to transport lumber there more quickly.  Free and enslaved African American People dug this canal by hand.  It was dug between 1810 and 1830.

Harriet Tubman worked here with her father Ben Ross and dug this canal. She Learned important skills that would later become useful during her trips back to the Eastern Shore and in South Carolina as a union spy and scout in the Combahee River Raid near Beaufort SC.

When I walked down to photograph this Pano a snake swam right at me.  Black head horseflies, green head horseflies and red head horseflies (from the Blood when they bite you) attacked me as well. And it’s only may. This is a horribly buggy, snake infested, and worst of all are the snapper turtles that will bite a hand off everywhere .

More About 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.
