Colorized engraving above from an 1855 issue of Ballou’s Pictorial magazine, depicts fishing at the Weirs Channel as it was practiced before and after white settlement of the area. Before settlement, there was a short waterfall at the Channel; afterwards, a miller’s dam. Drawn five years prior to the Civil War, the sentiment of the North,”In Truth Is Our Trust • In Union Our Strength”, is well expressed here.
