Tour officers’ quarters and the comforts within to discover the chains of correspondence that connected the Northern Department of the Continental Army together. Explore the process of proofing cannon, testing their breaking point double loads of shot and gunpowder. Watch oxen haul sleds heaped with edible essentials and see how General Phillip Schuyler used Lake Champlain as a frozen highway to feed the Continental Army in Canada, utilizing the sheer power of cattle.
