Hello, The question has come up as to where does the name "Gulph" comes from as in Gulph Mills and Old/New/Upper/etc Gulph Road. I run here with others and none of us can find a historical reference nor an idea as there are no gulphs in the area. Thank you for a light you can shed on this mystery to us. James

I have an original call to arms and was trying to find information about it and its value. This is the first search that I was able to find any history on it. The Museum of the Valley Forge Historical Society does not have any original recruitment broadsides in the collection. The Museum Store for the VFHS does sell a replica of one printed on parchment--it does not have any images at all. Many would try and attract attention by the "perks" that were identified: pay, food, clothes and bonuses at the end of the subscription of service. One particular broadside uses images of soldiers, demonstrating the movement of using a firearm. The language on such would go like this: TO ALL BRAVE, HEALTHY, ABLE BODIED, AND WELL DISPOSED YOUNG MEN, IN THIS NEIGHBOURHOOD, WHO HAVE ANY INCLINATION TO JOIN THE TROOPS, NOW RAISING UNDER GENERAL WASHINGTON FOR THE DEFENCE OF THE LIBERTIES AND INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES, AGAINST THE HOSTILE DESIGNS OF FOREIGN ENEMIES, TAKE NOTICE, THAT, (days of the week; place, who) COUNTY, ATTENDANCE WILL BE GIVEN BY (who) WITH HIS MUSIC AND RECRUITING PARTY OF (regiment) COMPANY IN (battallion) OF THE 11TH REGIMENT INFANTRY, COMMANDED BY LIEUTENANT COLONEL AARON OGDEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF RECEIVING THE ENROLLMENT OF SUCH YOUTH OF SPIRIT, AS MAY BE WILLING TO ENTER INTO THIS HONOURABLE SERVICE. THE ENCOURAGEMENT AT THIS TIME, TO ENLIST, IS TRULY LIBERAL AND GENEROUS, NAMELY A BOUNTY OF TWELVE DOLLARS, AN ANNUAL AND FULLY SUFFICIENT SUPPLY OF GOOD AND HANDSOME CLOTHING, A DAILY ALLOWANCE OF A LARGE AND AMPLE RATION OF PROVISIONS, TOGETHER WITH SIXTY DOLLARS A YEAR IN GOLD AND SILVER MONEY ON ACCOUNT OF PAY, THE WHOLE WHICH THE SOLDIER MAY LAY UP FOR HIMSELF AND FRIENDS AS ALL ARTICLES PROPER FOR HIS SUBSISTANCE AND COMFORT ARE PROVIDED BY LAW, WITHOUT ANY EXPENCE TO HIM. THOSE WHO MAY FAVOUR THIS RECRUITING PARTY WITH THEIR ATTENDANCE AS ABOVE, WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY OF HEARING AND FREEING IN A MORE PARTICULAR MANNER THE GREAT ADVANTAGES WHICH THEIR BRAVE MEN WILL HAVE, WHO SHALL EMBRACE THIS OPPORTUNITY OF SPENDING A FEW HAPPY YEARS IN VIEWING THE DISTANT PARTS OF THIS BEAUTIFUL CONTINENT IN THE HONOURABLE AND TRULY RESPECTABLE CHARACTER OF A SOLDIER, AFTER WHICH, HE MAY, IF HE PLEASES RETURN HOME TO HIS FRIENDS, WITH HIS POCKETS FULL OF MONEY AND HIS HEAD COVERED WITH LAURELS.

I'm supposed to write a report on first hand experiences at Valley Forge. However, I must be a woman beacause you really have to be yourself and Iwas wondering if you could give me some information on the way women lived and what their contributions were to the soldiers or whatever they did. Thank You.

Thank you for providing such an interesting site, and so pleasing to the eye! I have an ancestor who has written in his military muster reports that he was located at Valley Forge for the winter of 1777. He was issued "overalls" the following July. It is rewarding to find the information here concerning the circumstances of the time. Thank you.

What happened to the story and picture of the Indian Chief that came to Washington and bowed down to him. The Chief wanted to know Washington's God, as the Chief and his men kept firing at Washington for two hours; knowing he was getting hit; yet he came out of it without a scratch. His uniform was well torn up though. I was in American History class around the early 1950s when the story and picture were in that History book. Can you help me? Thank you for any attempt on your part finding this story with the picture.

I saw in today's paper that Lafayette has (finally!) been given honorary US citizenship. I am active w/ the Lafayette Oaks Homes Assn. here in Tallahassee. We are on the eastern edge of the Lafayette Land grant; a township (6 mi. x 6 mi.) of approximately 23,000 acres Lafayette was given in December 1824 along with $200,000. Perhaps you could add this piece of information to your site.

The Baron von Steuben liked young men. That's the reason he was dismissed from the Prussian Army. This is not at all "speculative" as your revisionist history suggests. Rather von Steubens preference for liutenants has been well documented by Randy Shilts in his book Conduct Unbecoming. Despite being an invert, von Steuben provided General Washington with the winning edge during the Revolutionary war. The Baron retired with honors from the Continental Army. Why is this so hard for you to say?

Our Countries History is fascinating. My Grandmother was a von Steuben. The Family changed their name to Stuby after immigrating to New York State after WWI.

Studying General von Steuben`s activities for George Washington, I found the name of Valley Forge as the site of their headquarter and relatively untrained american troops. My question: Where at that time did the General Majors Lafayette and von Kalb their military command job? In the Valley Forge County, too? Got their soldiers the same training, although they came from different military education in Europe? My next trip to your country will surely touch your place. Sincerely, ww

I really appreciate what George Washington and his fellow troops had to go through in Valley Forge.... for the best in the worst conditions. I really like this website. It is very informative.
hey, im in 8th grade on an advanced team and we are assigned plenty of projects. a particular project that we have to do is a play on a historical event. i chose valley forge, and i was the one in my group who ended up writing the play. i found this site and it was my main source of information. thank you so much, your information on valley forge was wonderful and helped me write the most outstanding play. you have really given me an insight into what times were really like back then, and i found myself arguing over who should write the play because i was so interested. and i am not one to get excited over schoolwork. thank you so much! i will always use this site for acess to historical information. sincerely, Heather

Several years ago, I visited the park and thoroughly enjoyed it! I recall seeing a painting hanging in the visitors center and I would like some more information on it. As I recall, it depicted a soldier, perhaps one of Morgan's Riflemen, perched on the limb of a large tree. He was either in the process of aiming his rifle or reloading, I don't remember which. I would like to know the name of the piece, who the artist was, and if there are prints available of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the fine work you have done collecting all of the information here. I am concerned, however, that there is not more information on members of the Society of Friends (Quakers)and their role in the everyday life at Valley Forge. My ancestor was Abijah Stephens, who was a physician and a Quaker, and whose home was used by the officers. It might be interesting to offer a perspective on the "other" side of the time at Valley Forge. Thanks!

What price can we put on the blood of the men who first secured our liberty? How would they feel about the sacred ground where a rag tag army was forged now being used to house the wealthy? Is that the dream for which they sacrificed? Is leaving this small area of our history alone such a terrible price to pay in honoring their gift to us? Would we deprive our children the right to walk these hills and let the spirit of our history speak to their hearts. Allow me to be perfectly clear. I oppose any and all desecration of the Valley Forge Area for ANY reason. David D. Martin Citizen

I just read about the toll brothers plan for developing the park. Is there some sort of petition to stop the plans? erin millar
