Ouch, point taken! 


What a fantastic nugget to find while trawling the internet. I love the poetic description "Both are men of more than usual strength and distinguished by their brutality"! All I know of America's canals is the Erie Canal song (by some bloke who I can't be bothered to Google) ;-)


Well that is so cool. We were at this exact location last month on holiday in Washington DC. We of course had no idea of its dark history. If you use Google maps then street view where Wisconsin Ave crosses the C&O canal, you can see what this area looks like today.
Very trendy, with a huge totally empty shopping mall along the canal
