SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The editors of an American history magazine plan to walk a Revolutionary War trail from the southern Adirondacks to Boston to raise funds for museums in New York Massachusetts and Maine.

The Saratogian newspaper reports that the editors at Patriots of the American Revolution magazine plan to spend 12 days in April walking along the Knox Trail from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston.

The trail follows the route Col. Henry Knox took while leading an expedition that hauled dozens of artillery pieces from the fort to Gen. George Washington’s troops outside Boston in the winter of 1775-1776. The arrival of the cannon forced the British to evacuate Boston.

The walk will raise money for the General Henry Knox Museum in Thomaston, Maine, Fort Ticonderoga, the New York State Military Museum and Boston National Historical Park.
