Gather up, History Explorers Club! In December of 1775, Henry Knox traveled to Fort Ticonderoga in New York to bring cannons back to Boston, using only a limited amount of tools, oxen, and men. They would have to travel over mountains, across frozen lakes, and through blizzards of snow and ice.

Join Museum staff as we recount the story of Knox’s journey, explore a miniature diorama, and look at 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.
