Please check this for me:
The construction of the Erie Canal was important because it
a. linked the Hudson River in New York and the Great Lakes in the Midwest, greatly increasing the trade between the two regions
b. helped eastern cities such as Boston and Philadelphia become important port cities
c. allowed eastern crops to be transported faster and more efficiently to cities in the South and the West
d. provided the best access to the Pacific Ocean
Here's a GOOGLE Search on the Erie Canal. I was born in Erie and my Grandad used to take me walking along the Canal. One could still see where the mules had beaten a permanent path through the grass!
thanks :) i'm pretty sure it's A
Yes, the answer is A.
