Lt. Jonathan Anderson will be coming to The History Center from 2 – 2:45 pm on March 24th, to present his historical tale about policing during the Erie Canal era. 

This event will cover many topics related to the Canal communities and their law enforcement. Topics for this event include; The Canal districts, Canal laws, the Sabbatarian Movement, the Underground Railroad along with its relations to the Canal, and the Canal Boy’s Saga— the true story about the cultural and economic growth the Canal had on the surrounding New York communities, as well as the increase of juvenile crime around the Canal during the mid-1800s. All this affected and changed the face of crime, and would set the precedent for law enforcement for years to come. 

This event is free and open to the public and will be followed by a brief Q & A period. It will take place at The Niagara History Center, 215 Niagara St. For more information, please contact us at, info@niagarahistory.org or call (716) 434-7433.
