In the bitter winter of 1775 -1776, the Continental Army had been under siege for months. Nineteen-year-old Will Knox and his older brother, Colonel Henry Knox, devised a daring plan to break the British blockade of Boston. Their goal was to trek across 300 miles of dangerous mountain wilderness to bring 183 cannons from Fort Ticonderoga back to Boston. For ages 10 -14.
