This photograph of the Dutch Gap Canal was taken from near this location in 1865. It shows the canal with a dredge boat in the background. The canal was dug in an attempt to bypass Confederate gun positions at Battery Dantzler approximately one mile to your right. Work on the canal began in August 1864 and ended in December of that year. Changes in the Federal and Confederate lines north of the river in September 1864 made the canal of little strategic value and it was not fully completed until after the war. In the 1930's the left bank of the canal was widened to create the modern day river channel. The low area behind the dredge in the photograph is now a golf course.
