About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument NY30, continue south on Route 71 to New York/Massachusetts state line and watch for monument on your right on the state line.

Notes: Originally the monuments placed in Columbia County beyond Kinderhook followed a route projected as running south on the old Post Road (State Route 9H) to the Village of Claverack, then running east along State Route 23 to Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In the early 1970s research was done that supported an alternative route, running southeasterly from Kinderhook across Columbia County to the junction of State Routes 22 and 71 in the southeastern corner of the county, then down Route 71 into Massachusetts. In about 1975, the several monuments between Kinderhook and the State Line were relocated to reflect this new route.

Context: Knox, in advance of the artillery train, passed this route during the second week of January, and the sleds of artillery followed shortly thereafter.
