Summary
"This history recounts innovations in shipping, the improvement of channels and harbors, the creation of locks, technical advances in loading and unloading equipment, and the ability to attract capital and government support to fund the various projects. These changes, which often functioned symbiotically, represent one of the key untold stories in the spectacular rise of American industry."--Provided by publisher
