The Knox Trail - Field Inventory
Context: Henry Knox's diary is the major source we have for day-to-day events associated with the expedition. Unfortunately there is a gap in that manuscript from December 18th to December 23rd. One may assume that during this period Knox continued to search for sleds and teams to drag the cannon south from Lake George and to wait for sufficient snow to make the roads passable for those sleds.
During the next two weeks, the sleds carrying the guns southward from Fort George toward Albany would wend their way past this point in the road.
