One of the most notable generals in George Washington's army was Henry Knox of Massachusetts. In a remarkable feat, he recovered cannon and mortars from Fort Ticonderoga, in northern New York, and transported them to Cambridge. His diary documents the difficulties of this midwinter journey, which was plagued with obstacles.
