THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER ๐Ÿ‘‡

The correct answer is C. Between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes.

Explanation:

Let us remember that the Erie Canal is a historic waterway in the northern United States, starting from Buffalo on Lake Erie to Albany on the Hudson River, connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.

Although the canal was first proposed in 1807, it was not until 1817, commissioned by the 6th Governor of New York, DeWitt Clinton, when the Niagara Canal Company began preparing for its construction. It was also installed in 1825 by Governor Clinton. It contributed greatly to the settlement of the Midwest, which allowed the transportation of people and supplies.
