Catoctin Creek Aqueduct

C&O Canal Towpath – Mile Marker 51.5
The original Catoctin Aqueduct was completed in 1834. This was also called the “Crooked Aqueduct” because of the sharp turns before and after it on the canal. It was made of granite from Ellicott Mills in Baltimore county. Since it uses two different kinds of arches: elliptical in the center, and Roman on the side, the two stresses do not balance each other, and are prone to failure. Restoration of the aqueduct using many original stones was completed on 25 October 2011.

Fort Fisher Historic Museum

Until the last few months of the Civil War, Fort Fisher kept North Carolina’s port of Wilmington open to blockade-runners supplying necessary goods to Confederate armies inland. By 1865, the supply line through Wilmington was the last remaining supply route open to Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. When Ft. Fisher fell after a massive Federal amphibious assault on January 15, 1865, its defeat helped seal the fate of the Confederacy.
