Author Martha Kendall tells the amazing history of the canal, which President Jefferson and President Madison said could never be built. They claimed the idea was "madness." But the 8th Wonder of the World was built, and the young United States knew that anything was possible! In addition to telling stories about this engineering marvel of its time, Martha Kendall performs music of the era on fiddle, guitar, banjo and penny whistle, and she shows stunning images of the canal today.
