U.S. English
context: History of the Hudson River, from a children's book:

Called "Washington's watch fob," a massive chain made of huge iron links was floated across the river at West Point on a bed of logs.

This is one sentence that has several difficult points for me. It begins with a participal modifier, which I moved to put "chain" at the beginning. The phrase is the thread title has several adjectives which I didn't know how to put in order. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Una massiccia catena, conosciuta come "la catenella di Washington," fatta di anelli enorme di ferro fu portata attraverso il fiume a West Point su una zattera di tronchi.

THANK YOU!
