Well, at first I was a little befuddled when I saw this sculpture on the backside of the Cumberland Train Station, but then I remembered. This is where the C and O Canal ends and mules were used to pull the rafts/barges/boats on the water. The young boy was barefoot, just like me!! George Washington wanted to build a canal into Ohio, but it was a race with the train and the train won!! The train kept going west and the canal stopped here!!
