Very interesting article I’d’ve missed had I not started my subscription.
I must have missed this before but I’m glad it has been reprinted. The history in Augusta amazes me sometimes, yet all that seems to happen is destroying it a little at a time. We know the UR has ties to Savannah with the churches so it is logical to think that Augusta could have been a hotspot location for relocating slaves.
Very informative article. We have always been told that the work force that built the canal was mainly composed of Chinese. Thank you.
Well worth a reread, thank you.
Good history lesson looking forward for the story for another day . I’ve really enjoyed my subscription keep up the good work.
A great story that more people should know about.
Love the article of the history of how the canal was built. I always thought it was built using only Chinese labor. Glad to see the contribution of black labor and Irish labor. We still don’t like the heat but it’s ok as long as we don’t have to build a canal in it. 😂
Very good and interesting article.
