- The Middlesex Canal began operation in 1803, while the Blackstone Canal began 25 years later. Both provided alternate trade routes for merchants and both ran into trouble trying to "stay afloat." Each canal's construction was an arduous task, taking huge sums of money and manpower. Brunton Dixon examines the great stories behind the origins and operations of both failed canals.
