More information on Knox is below.  And for those who are interested, the canon image is from John Müller, "A Treatise of Artillery,” published 1757, imprint date 1779; The Evans Collection,  Early American Imprints, Series I, 1639-1800.

Historical Background Behind the Design: Henry Knox and his noble train of artillery

"On March 17, 1776, George Washington stood on Dorchester Heights alongside fifty-nine captured cannon high above the city of Boston, Massachusetts, and watched as British troops peacefully evacuated the city after an eleven-month siege.

"It was a remarkable moment for many reasons. The siege had begun in April 1775, in the days after the Revolution’s opening battles at Lexington and Concord, when local militias cut off the peninsular city from surrounding towns. A twenty-five-year-old Continental Army officer and former Boston bookseller named Henry Knox suggested that cannon might be used to drive the British from the town. Washington sent Knox to Crown Point and the recently captured Fort Ticonderoga in northern New York to retrieve fifty-nine cannon and mortars and bring them to Boston. . . .

"Knox and his men moved the cannon 300 miles in fifty-six days with the help of oxen and ice sledges and arrived outside Boston on January 25, 1776. When powder for the cannon finally arrived, the Americans began firing on Boston on March 2, and on March 4 mounted the largest guns on Dorchester Heights. British fire couldn’t reach Washington’s forces, and the British loaded their ships and withdrew to Halifax, Nova Scotia, on March 17."

          Delightful

          This shirt is a gentle inside joke for my artillery officer (retired) husband. I appreciate the heft of the cotton fabric, the accurate sizing, and the color fastness. I look forward to more fun shirt designs in the future from History List.
