My Dad and I went on this super historic canal dug by slaves in the 1850s. We also found an indian mound hidden away on the river. I hope you guys enjoy the hunt!

I very rarely watch videos, but that was way cool. Like stepping back in time.

What was the water source for the Indians before the canal was dug in the 1850's or did the canal follow and old stream bed?

Thank you so much! That means a lot!!

I'm pretty sure you hit the nail on the head. My Dad seems to remember hearing that they dug a shallow stream deeper. But if not, there would have still been water likely within easy walking distance because there are lots of places where the rivers pop out of the ground.

Too bad for many that don't do click bait video posts-we don't see anything-just saying why not post a photo or two up?
After all this is the "Today's Finds Page" Not a video link page.

Just noticed that you made the trip with your Daddy. You're a lucky man to still have him around. Mine passed 16 years ago and I miss him dearly.

Duly noted :) Thanks buddy. The wife really wanted it, so did I really have a choice? ;)

Thanks man. My grandpa (his dad) passed away at the beginning of the year, a wound that is definitely still very fresh. Thank you for reminding me of the blessing I still have!
