Hermitage Plantation, built c.1820, near Savannah, Georgia. During the Civil War the Hermitage was ransacked but not destroyed. The site never regained the prominence that it had once enjoyed. Henry McAlpin's descendants attempted to restore the house & returned to the Hermitage in 1894. This photograph was taken in the early 20th century. [From Savannah River Plantations by Frank T. Wheeler]

Situated in north-eastern Wales, the 18 kilometre long Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal is a feat of civil engineering of the Industrial Revolution, completed in the early years of the 19th century. Covering a difficult geographical setting, the building of the canal required substantial, bold civil engineering solutions, especially as it was built without using locks.

Canal du Mid  This 360-km network of navigable waterways linking the Mediterranean and the Atlantic through 328 structures (locks, aqueducts, bridges, tunnels, etc.) is one of the most remarkable feats of civil engineering in modern times. Built between 1667 and 1694, it paved the way for the Industrial Revolution. The care that its creator, Pierre-Paul Riquet, took in the design and the way it blends with its surroundings turned a technical achievement into a work of art.

Lancaster, Ohio -Is Mudhouse Mansion haunted? One legend says a government official who lived there after the Civil War and still kept slaves (even in the North), locking them in one of the outbuildings at night. One night the slave dug his way out, entered the house, and slaughtered the entire family.
