About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument NY24, continue east on Routes 9 & 20 past junction with Route 4 from the north. At top of next hill, in East Greenbush, watch for monument on right in front of large brick church.

Context: This marker indicates the spot at which the sleds, now safely across the ice on the Hudson River, began their journey by land toward Massachusetts.

On the morning of January 9th, having seen his train of sleds safely on their way, Knox rides on ahead: I set out from thence about twelve OClock & went as far as Claverack about 9 miles beyond Kinderhook.
