George Washington’s Snow Army

Today, winters in upstate New York bring a mixture of excitement and frustration. Many folks enjoy various winter activities such as snowshoeing and sledding, but then, there's also shoveling, and snow blowing that has to be done. It was much the same at Fort Stanwix during the American Revolution when the soldiers engaged in fun activities like snow ball fights, but also had to keep the fort ready in case of a wintertime attack by shoveling out the ditch and corners of the fort.
