What I'm working on

Schoharie Aqueduct, 5/25/13.
I'm writing a book involving the history and legacy of the Erie Canal and DeWitt Clinton, tying together national and family history and current-day observations. It will be illustrated with photos by George Gruel of Oddstick Studio that will be far better than the phone snapshot you see above, which I took this weekend at the Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site in Fort Hunter, NY. I expect the book to be quite a unique thing, notwithstanding the varied existing literature on related subjects. It will also take some time to develop and finish, and this blog will offer further information down the road. (For a PDF of earlier related writings by me, see here.)
