A dam of only about 12 feet in height now throws the
waters of the St. Josephs through its original channel, the
valley of Little river, down which descends the Wabash and
Erie Canal. This change has occurred even more recently
than that in relation to Lake Michigan. In the days of
Father HENNEPIN and the early French voyagers, the birch
canoe of the red man navigated the Little river valley from
the Lake to the Wabash, at the time of Spring freshets, and
at all other times when the streams were swollen.
