and U.S. Centennial Commission, On the Schuylkill River, Philadelphia."
August 28, 1876
In 1876, the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen held the first International Regatta on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This event coincided with the Centennial Exposition also taking place in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on the banks of the Schuylkill. The International Regatta of 1876 was the largest regatta in the United States up to that time.
