"Three hundred years of dreams have culminated in this picture (the gray superstructure of the Sagamore Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal) .the practical factors of national defense and world trade have given it a deeper significance to those who know its history. In its story the dreamers are many; the doers are two - August Belmont and the United States Army Corps of Engineers; but all have their place in making the dream of a Cape Cod Canal come true.".
