My first real memory of the park was at a Boy Scout jamboree held in the fifties. Living less then five miles away I visit it iften, and always enjoy taking out of otwn visitors there. I still have to get used to it being Federal Lands and the new driving pattern. Otheriwise, go if you can it is a great experience.

I was reading a speech by Jorge Mas Santos who is the chairman of Cuban American National Foundation. This is a portion of what he said: "In this context, let me just note an historical incident that every Cuban knows but few Americans remember. In the dark hours of the American Revolution—as the colonial troops were threatened with annihilation by the British redcoats—a group of women in Cuba came together and, in order to raise desperately needed funds to send George Washington to help feed his army, sold their jewelry. Many historians credit these "Ladies of Havana" with staving off the collapse of the revolutionary army long enough for Washington to defeat Cornwallis at Yorktown and ensure the birth of this great nation. What we ask now is that in their time of continuing need, we give the Cuban people the resources to take back their destiny into their own hands." Is there validity of there being any Ladies of Havana? Thanks, Sue Smith

I am so glad that Valley Forge was recognized by the National Trust for H.P. I have been trying to get recognition for my family's heritage site on the Potomac in Maryland. It is pre-Revolutionary (1730) and its cemetery contains two Revolutionary veterans and the widow of a Brig. General of the Revolution. It is managed by the National Park Service, and there has been no preservation in 20 years. I would like to know how you have managed to work together to preserve Valley Forge.

Here's a little tibit that you may find interesting about Henry Knox: After the war, he aquired through his influence, rights to the "Waldo patent" for $5 per hundred acres and began threatening the settlers there with eviction if they did not pay him outrageous sums ($3 to 5 per acre) for the lands they fought for and developed. There was quite a bit of civil unrest due to the extortive offer in the area he aquired; but because he had the influence; the state upheld his claim to the lands, spurious though it was. Out of the outrage of his actions, 3 towns that were finnally chartered were named Freedom, Liberty and Unity. He was no hero of the common man. See "Liberty Men and great Propietors" by Alan Taylor.

We live near Valley Forge State Park now and go there every night after dinner to walk around this magnificent park. In doing so, I could feel the history all around me. Since it's been a few years since I studied history, I want to find out everything I can about this wonderful place.

I am a 5th grade teacher looking for a song about Valley Forge which my sister learned in elementary school in the 60's. We don't know the title, but the chorus goes something like this: So, it's drill, march, march, drill It surely wasn't fun To winter down at Valley Forge With General Washington. The verses talk about all the hardships the soldiers endured (no shoes, moldy bread, etc.). Anyway, if you have it great. If not, any ideas on where I can go to look for it with my limited information? Thanks PJ

Two of my forebears, Joshua and Henry Tillery served in the Continental Army. A John Tillery is listed as being with Washington at VF. I do not yet know how he is related, but he is no doubt one of the Tillerys from Richmond County, VA, originally from Scotland.

Having worked at Valley Forge State Park in the 1970s and during the bicentennial wagon train event, I'm happy to see this site available with people-friendly information about the park. It's always been a beautiful area (I was born and raised in Phoenixville), and the history makes it even more so. thanks!

hi, i am only in eighth grade, but my history teacher is Mr. Donagon. i don't care much for hisory but he accually keeps me interested. he tells us stories about how the battles took place. he tells the stories like he's been there and they make you feel like your there along with him. i just wanted to tell you this if you probaly wondered why a 14 year old was on a historical site. cause i don't think a lot of people my age would go to a historical site. well because of my hisory teacher i love hisory. if you wonder who this is i go to Karns City jr. sr. high school in Karns CIty ,. Pennsylvania. check him and our school out.

Was thrilled to see the question posed by Wendy Walker, a direct decendent of Lewis Walker. I, too, am a direct decendent of Lewis Walker, and would very much like to correspond with her, if she has the time.Would so much like to walk the area our ancestors lived in, way back then. I am the great granddaughter of Abner Walker, who left Pa, and moved west to SD,around 1865.
