Rufus S. Reed 2

Hi I am Civil War Sallie and I will tell you about the Rufus S. Reed 2 at the Canal Museum. The Rufus S. Reed 2 is a freighter and it went up and down the Erie Canal with supplies to keep the builders to keep building. The frieghter held whiskey, coal, sugar, salt, and much more. I also learned that the people had to sleep outside on top of the freighter. The water that they sailed on was so dirty that you could not even touch it.
