This created an area in where twenty percent of the world’s fresh surface water resides (TED ED). Also during its retreat, the Laurentide Ice Sheet also left behind a desolate landscape that only contained the spores of lichen. Eventually, that lichen sprouted and attracted birds which in turn eventually brought all life back to this once ice covered land mass (PBS). Today some of the rocky outcroppings that the

The Niagara Shipwrecks. They have become some of the best habitats for marine life in the areas they were wrecked, but how are they still here now? Over a few centuries, the ship should have decayed enough for the wood to have broken and the iron to have rusted away. Well, over the course of the next 5 minutes we will be looking at the life of the Niagara and how it sunk, and also the chemistry behind how the Niagara has been preserved over the past hundred years. The Niagara was first built in 1872 by the Detroit Dry Dock Company as Hull No.
I think it was cool to find artifacts and proof that the soldiers and camp were there. Although it’s exciting to find out history it’s terrible to think about what the union soldiers went through. I do agree with the findings they made to a certain point but I was not actually out there digging so I cannot completely be sure. The concerns I mostly had were with the finds they had of the walls they proclaimed to have gotten pieces of. In the video, they pulled stakes or posts out of the water and ground and claimed they were part of the wall around the camp.
In May of 1991, a three hundred year silence was shattered with the discovery of the African Burial Ground in lower Manhattan. Widely acknowledged as one of the most significant American archeological finds of the twentieth century. Prior to the 1991 discovery, plans to erect a 34-story, $276-million federal building required that a cultural resource survey, including archeological field-testing, be completed. Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, such research is required on any project using public funds that may have the potential to impact historic resources. During the last days of the excavation, the archaeological team discovered a missing chapter of New York history¿the

It is also the name of a fifteen-acre, working-class neighborhood of around 800 single-family homes built directly adjacent to the canal. From 1942 to 1953, the Hooker Chemical Company, with government sanction, began using the partially dug canal as a chemical waste dump. At the end of this period, the contents of the canal consisted of around 21,000 tons of toxic chemicals, including at least twelve known carcinogens (halogenated organics, chlorobenzenes, and dioxin among them). Hooker capped the 16-acre hazardous waste landfill in clay and sold the land to the Niagara Falls School Board, attempting to absolve itself of any future liability by including a warning in the property deed”
