Canal trade, 1876


Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



This compilation of newspaper articles about the C. & O. Canal is one of a series. The Cumberland newspaper was found on microfilm at Frostburg State University, Frostburg, MD and at Allegany College of Maryland, Cumberland, MD. I did not include newspaper editorials because those were opinion pieces. The report does offer a glimpse of life on the Canal in 1876.

The data in this 1876 report was compared with the 1874, 1875 and 1877 data and a few corrections to spellings made; this is an edited report. The "Register of Boats Employed on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal from The Cumberland Alleganian and Cumberland Daily Times 1876" is a companion document to this report, including only information from the newspaper.
