  • Before Washington crossed the Delaware, Henry Knox crossed Massachusetts in winter with 59 cannons in tow.

    In 1775, in the dead of winter, a bookseller named Henry Knox dragged 59 cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston over 225 miles of lakes, forests, mountains, and few roads. It was a feat of remarkable ingenuity and determination and one of the most surprising stories of the Revolutionary War. In Henry and the Cannons, the perils and adventure of his journey come to life through Don Brown's vivid and evocative artwork.
