Now playing on The Historians Podcast: Episode 272

A long stretch of New York’s Mohawk River became a canal in the early 1900s.  Bridge dams made that possible and are still in use today.  Michael Riley, author of the book “Bridge Dams on the Mohawk: David A. Watt’s Marvelous Creation,” is the guest on this week’s Historians Podcast. Michael Riley/Bridge Dams/The Historians/Friday, June 28, 2019
