How was the cheese ball transported? I would imagine they transported it by water as much as possible but at least part of the route would have to have been by land. Roads then especially in farming country where mostly narrow and dirt covered, there where few if any paved roads except in cities. This must have been a major undertaking.

The cheese was taken by sleigh to Hudson NY where it was loaded onto a sloop and taken to NY city and then on to Baltimore where it was put on a wagon and driven to DC
