VIRTUAL | History Explorer Meet-Up: Mountains of Ice and SnowDecember 14, 2022 from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
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 virtually on Wednesday, Dec. 14, for this 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!
This is an online event held virtually through Zoom. One ticket grants access for one household.
