Ticonderoga Gun for the Siege of Boston! Colonel Henry Knox, a Boston bookseller and avid reader, impressed General Washington and his council of war, becoming colonel of the Continental Army's artillery. His first challenge was to bring guns from Ticonderoga to the siege of Boston. He knew the challenge before him as he wrote to Washington on December 5, 1775. The garrison at Ticonderoga is so weak, the conveyance from the fort to the landing is so difficult, the passage across the lake so precarious, that I am afraid it will be ten days at least before I can get them on this side. When they are here, the conveyance from hence will depend entirely on the sledding; if that is wood, they shall immediately move forward; without sledding, the roads are so much gullied that it will be impossible to move a step. In this one day living history event, step into Fort Ticonderoga as if it were December 6, 1775, when Henry Knox rode into these storied walls. Watch as soldiers, days before their enlistment expires, work as carpenters to maintain the Fort. Experience the raw power of oxen as these thousand pound animals pull sleds of cannon tubes. Examine the science of gunnery, preserved in Fort Ticonderoga's massive cannon collection. Stand inside the stone walls in the stark beauty of winter on the very spot where Henry Knox began his Noble Train of Artillery.
