• Illinois Adventure #1507 "Illinois and Michigan Canal"

    The opening of the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1848 gave Illinois the key to mastery of the American mid-continent. The dream of the canal had animated every vision and under laid every plan for Illinois for 200 years before. As that vision was realized, the canal's commissioners laid out a canal port that would grow into a great metropolis; their fellow citizens patented agriculture and industrial innovations that would make this the richest economic zone the world had ever seen.

    The Illinois and Michigan Canal connected the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. It ran 96 miles (154 km) from the Chicago River in Bridgeport, Chicago to the Illinois River at LaSalle-Peru. The canal crossed the Chicago Portage and helped establish Chicago as the transportation hub of the United States, before the railroad era. It was opened in 1848, its function was largely replaced by the wider and shorter Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal in 1900 and it ceased transportation operations with the completion of the Illinois Waterway in 1933 LIKE, SUBSCRIBE and don't forget to comment! ~~~Social Media~~~ https://www.instagram.com/kyle_d90/ https://twitter.com/KyleDitch Music Credits: Old Friend by Silent Partner

    Song i wrote about the I&M canal which is part of the history of my hometown of LaSalle IL. If you enjoy my songwriting please check out my Album "In my Hometown" at: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/raymondtutajjr1 The I&M canal is rich with history and the importance of it in transporting goods is immense. However the idea for this canal dates back to the early 1670's when French explorers such as Louis Joliet, Father Marquette envisioned a water route to connect the Chicago River to the Des Plaines river but explorer Cavalier LaSalle insisted they go all the way to the Illinois River at a point which would be later called LaSalle.

The Illinois River upstream was to shallow and rocky to float any cargo boats. This proposed route would ultimately connect the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico and places such as New York and New Orleans would then be connected. It was only a dream at that time and the consideration for such an immense project would not be considered until 150 long years later in1818 when Illinois then became a State. In 1836 work began and numerous Irish immigrants along with others from black slaves, Indians, German, English and French Canadian Immigrants.
