Framingham's Boy Scout Den 9 is part of Pack 78, the in the Boy Scouts of America. According to Den Leader Phil Paget, the group of 10 8-year old boys was visiting the Henry Knox Trail as part of their study of Framingham's history on Thursday, Sept. 8.
Phil tells Framingham Patch, "Between Dec. 7, 1775 and Jan. 24, 1776, General Henry Knox and his men transported cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Cambridge. Part of the trail goes through Framingham."
Boy Scout Connor McDonald commented, "I think that (Henry Knox) should be really proud of what he did."
In addition to Connor, nine other members of Den 9 toured the Henry Knox Trail. They included Cole Ellison, Ethan Hippolyte, Brock Hoey, Justin Levitin, Ryan Memmott, Jack Henry Paget, Joey Till, Joey Tunno and Alex Whalen.
Parents were on hand to provide support and transportation.
