About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument NY18, continue south on Route 4 into Village of Waterford. At stop light turn left to follow Route 4 east and watch for monument in park on your right just before the bridge over the Hudson River.

Context: This marks the route south toward Albany Knox took on December 25th: noting in his diary: . the roads not being broken prevented our getting farther than New City, about 9 miles above Albany - where we lodg'd.

The train of artillery on sleds would have followed the same road.
