About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument NY4, continue west on Montcalm Street to The Portage (Champlain Avenue) and turn left. Follow this south onto Black Point Road and watch for monument on right at entrance to Mossy Point State Boat Launch.

Context: It is here, in the vicinity of the bridge, where the guns were transferred to ox carts to be sent down the Portage Road to the north end of Lake George.

Knox's diary entry for December 7th reads: Employ'd in getting the cannon from the bridge to the landing at Lake George. While Knox was supervising the overland movement of the cannon down the Portage Road to the Lake George Landing, the gundalow was employed moving the sixteen smaller pieces from Fort Ticonderoga to the bridge, where they were ready the next day.
