Erie Canal the impacts

The Erie Canal was used and opened after the Second Great Awakening when transcendentalism came to an arise in 1825; it was permitted by governor Clinton with the use of connecting Lake Erie and the Great Lakes to the Hudson River. It majorly impacted shipping and made it more progressive and efficient. It included shipping with crops from farmers of the south to the north and allowed northern manufactures to ship good west. It also initiated New York City's becoming of America's main commercial area, led to the making of much more canals in the future, and increased jobs within New York City that eventually increased as new jobs were made for more canals of the future.
