Noah Lewis portrays Ned Hector and teaches a young guest how to fire a cannon as part of our Meet The Revolution series.

In December of 1775, Henry Knox traveled to Fort Ticonderoga in New York to bring cannons back to Boston, using only a limited number of tools, oxen, and men. They would have to travel over mountains, frozen lakes, and through blizzards of snow and ice. Join Museum staff on Tuesday, Dec. 27, for this hands-on, activity-filled exploration of Knox’s journey. We’ll explore a miniature diorama and use replica objects to help us solve how exactly he managed to move all 59 cannons in the middle of winter to help free the city of Boston! 

Kids are invited to take the lead in this family-friendly program, but at least one adult must accompany up to three children.
