of four barges . The Director General of the United States Railroad Administration took over jurisdiction and operation of the canal four days later under a presidential proclamation. The United States Army Corps of Engineers re-dredged the channel to 25 feet deep while it remained under government control until 1920. In 1928, the government purchased the canal for use as a free public waterway. The purchase price was $11,400,000, and $21,000,000 was spent between 1935 to 1940 increasing the canal's width to 480 feet, and its depth to 32 feet. Reid, August 1965, pp.85-86 As a result, the canal became the widest sea level canal in the world. http: www.nae.usace.army.mil recreati ccc Navigation navigation.htm The southern entrance to the canal was rebuilt for direct access from Buzzards Bay rather than through Phinney Harbor. Before construction began, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, built a huge scale model, of 9 feet to a mile, of the canal to study the effects of tidal currents on the enlarged and re-routed canal. "Model of Cape Cod Canal Helps Study of Channel" ''Popular Mechanics'', April 1936 His visit to Cape Cod in 1797 coincided with the division of the town of Eastham into two towns, one of which took the name of Orleans, possibly in his honour. During their sojourn, the Orléans princes travelled throughout the country, visiting as far south as Nashville (Nashville, Tennessee) and as far north as Maine. The brothers were even held in Philadelphia briefly during an outbreak of yellow fever. Louis Philippe is also thought to have met Isaac Snow of Orleans (Orleans, Massachusetts), Massachusetts, who had escaped to France from a British prison hulk during the American Revolution. In 1839, while reflecting on his visit to the United States, Louis Philippe explained in a letter to Guizot (François Guizot) that his three years there had a large influence on his later political beliefs and judgments when he became king. History Originally settled by the Nauset tribe, Eastham was the site where in 1621 a hunting expedition comprised from the crew of the sailing vessel ''Mayflower'', which had stopped in Provincetown harbor on Cape Cod Bay after a rough crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, which led to the first encounter of the Pilgrims (Pilgrim (Plymouth Colony)) and the local Nauset Indians at First Encounter Beach. The area would not be settled by Europeans, however, until 1644. The original lands included what are now the towns of Truro (Truro, Massachusetts), Wellfleet (Wellfleet, Massachusetts), Eastham, Orleans (Orleans, Massachusetts) and a small portion of Chatham (Chatham, Massachusetts). Eastham town was officially incorporated in 1651. Birthplace of '''Freeman Hatch''', who in 1853 set the world record (which still stands) for a single-hull wooden sailing vessel from San Francisco around Cape Horn to Boston aboard the clipper ship '''''Northern Light'''''. Fishing and especially farming were early industries in the town, and writers and artists also came to the town. In fact, it was in Eastham that Henry Beston wrote ''The Outermost House.'' The town is discussed at some length in Henry David Thoreau's (Henry David Thoreau) ''Cape Cod'' as the somewhat rugged site of one of New England's largest summer "camp-meeting" evangelistic gatherings in the mid-19th century. The gatherings were at times attended by at least "one hundred and fifty ministers, (!) and five thousand hearers" at a site called Millennium Grove, in the northwest part of town. (The area is now a residential neighborhood, the only reminder being Millennium Lane.) thumb left 200px Nauset Light (File:Nauset Light 1.jpg), Cape Cod National Seashore According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of north–south New England Interstate Route from Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts (at NE-3) to Ossipee, New Hampshire (at NE-16) via Boston and Manchester, New Hampshire. The portion in Massachusetts has since been extended east into Cape Cod (along the original alignment of NE-3) and currently ends at the Orleans Rotary in the town of Orleans (Orleans, Massachusetts) with US 6 and Route 6A (Route 6A (Massachusetts)).
