Donald Friary, former executive director at Historic Deerfield, will lead The Knox Expedition, a five-day/four-night luxury motor coach tour from Montpelier to Fort Ticonderoga to Boston, tracing Henry Knox’s historic footsteps delivering the cannons to George Washington, from New York to Dorchester Heights, and throughout Colonial Boston.

Highlights of the autumn tour will include private tours of the fort and museum; a guided cruise on Lake Champlain; Guns by Night, a dramatic nighttime artillery demonstration; guided walking tour of Knox’s Boston; and catered dinner at The Colonial Society of Massachusetts’ 1806 Charles Bulfinch-designed house on Beacon Hill.

Friary, who lives in Port Clyde and Salem, Mass., has organized and guided historical tours in the United States, Canada and Europe for more than 30 years. A Ph.D. in American Civilization from the University of Pennsylvania and specialist in New England history and culture, he is president of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, director emeritus of Historic Deerfield and a past trustee of the New England Historic Genealogical Society.

Reservations for the Sept. 7 through 11 trip, and space is limited. For more information, call the general Henry Knox Museum at 354-8062.
