Yes, I am a military member currently stationed in Ohio but form Malvern, PA just up the street from Valley Forge. Everytime I come home I make sure to visit Valley Forge. I now have three children and I take them there to show them a part of history that most children will only read in books, they can actually say they have been there.

I am trying to track down a reference in Pres. Carter's new book. The review said "Carter is very good on the long-forgotten tar-and-feathers episode that transforms the Tory Thomas Brown into Clarke's archenemy." I am looking for the true story.
Harry D. Fisher [11-26-2003]
I just saw a part of "King of the Queens", where the name "Benedict Arnold" was mentioned. I remembered, that I read this name first time in a "Superman" comic strip in the early seventies, when I was a lad; I then got me books from the local library to learn more about this man and his time. Today, we just feed the name to a web-searching machine like "Google" and get plenty of informations, so on your beautiful website. To me this collection is somehow enchanting: the ease of fictional Comedies and Comics, the seriousness of history and real live, the austere perfection of computers and the internet.

Howdy amigos! I used this site for a report and got an A! Thanx!
Randi (Blibolyte) Spencer [11-17-2003]
I hope you can add material to the site on the reason why the troops were starving at Valley Forge. The British were ruining the colonist's currency by printing counterfit. The colonists solved the problem by printing new currency. That saved the revolution and our nation emerged from the effort.

I had to do a report on Quakers for school and a diary I was able to get from the library was The Diary of Sally Wister and this website was on the back. I think if you had information on the Quakers and the conflicts they had about war and not being accepted because of their religion etc. would be great. I think this would be a great reference page for this material.
This was great and very informational.People doing research on Valley Forge would really appreciate this site and I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks

Bryant Weatherton, Beaumont, Texas [10-19-2003]
I was a nine year old in 1956 when my Mom married my wonderful step-Dad in Washington Chapel, in Valley Forge, on Washington's birthday! We lived in a lovely place in Bryn Mawr, PA. My best friend lived in Wayne, PA, on the border of the Valley Forge Park, in a house, (for real) that George Washington "slept in". One day, Robbie, my friend and I were near one of the museum sites, when we heard, "Stop, stop that boy!" We saw a boy, about our age run out, and we started to chase him! He was quite ahead of us but we saw him throw something on the ground. When we got there we found a lot of Revolutionary bills on the ground and returned them to the ladies at the museum. The ladies treated us like heroes for finding the bills the "stinker" had stolen from the exhibit. One of life's golden moments. HISTORY is what WE are TODAY!

Lucy Peterson: I am excited to know of your interest in Samuel Coy. He was in fact in the Revolutionary War, died at Valley Forge April 6, 1778. I was accepted into the DAR by him. I would, however, love to have a picture of him. Are you a descendant? I would love to chat with you. My email is DGDroe@adelphia.net I have already found a distant relative in California through another ancestor. It truly is exciting to meet and compare notes.

In these times of turmoil in our relationship with France, many Americans feel it necessary to remind France of the services that we have rendered in 2 wars. Perhaps it has been too easily forgotten that the French, both individually and as a nation, served the US equally well. Great website.

Now,I would like to visit Valley Forge, Independence Hall and all those places again to REALLY enjoy the trip and have a TRUE learning experience.

Capt. Thomas Butler of the 3rd PA, from Carlisle, PA (Original Member of the Soc. of the Cincinnatti) who was a Valley Forge is my fourth great grandfather and my favorite ancestor. I am researching his life. After his death Washington Irving wrote a story about him in Diedrich Knickerbocker's Tales of NY. Before moving to Hilton Head I lived very close to Valley Forge Park and took walks there frequently, never knowing I had had an ancestor there.

I think tour distrect is very cool.
what Laura wrote was really good. this is what she wrote: "Great Site! However, do you know who happened to write this and where it came from? I'm still looking cause i'm going to take this to a support the troops rally in case the antiwar hateful types show up. The Soldier- After reading this, please close your eyes and picture in your mind the soldier at Valley Forge, as he holds his musket in his bloody hands. He stands barefoot in the snow, starved from lack of food, wounded, weary from months of battle and emotionally scarred from the eternity away from his family--surrounded by nothing but death and carnage of war. He stands tough, with fire in his eyes and victory on his breath. He looks at us now in anger and disgust and tells us this... I gave you a birthright of freedom born in the Constitution, and now your children graduate too illiterate to read it. I fought in the snow barefoot to give you the freedom to vote, and you stay at home because it rains. I left my family destitute to give you the freedom of speech, and you remain silent on critical issues, because it might be bad for business. I orphaned my children to give you a government to serve you, and it has stolen democracy from the people. It's the soldier, not the reporter, who gives you the freedom of the press. It's the soldier, not the poet, who gives you the freedom of speech. It's the soldier, not the campus organizer, who allows you to demonstrate. It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, and whose coffin is draped with the flag that allows the protester to burn the flag! "Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen." i agree with her. people just have no fun these days cause they don't want to be stared at in a wrong way. who cares! God gave us all one life to live on this earth. so just make the best out of it. u don't know when ur going to die. so just do what i said before and make the best out of it.

Thanks for creating this page-- I'm doing a high-school thesis paper on Valley Forge and really found this page helpful. Most history books only devote 2-3 pages to Valley Forge, but you designed a whole website on it! Could you send more info on what exactly they ate? You only mentioned their flour/water mixture pancakes, but I've read about a "beef stew", a mixture of burnt leaves and dirt? Know any more? Would appreciate it.

I think that George Washington did pray at Valley Forge. Whether or not anyone saw him doesnn't matter. The point is, he was a man of God and probably prayed numerous times during his stay at Valley Forge

I have in my possesion line illustrations of Valley Forge that were published in 1877-'78, for the 100th anniversary of the encampment. They are in a scrapbook keep by Elizabeth Brookfield Holsteine, a resident of Upper Merion. Her mother Anna worked as a nurse during the Civil War and wrote the book "Three Years in Field Hospitals With The Army Of The Potomac". If you would be interested in copies of these I'll gladly scan them and send them along. Or I can just photocopy them and mail them or drop them off. Just let me know if you're interested. MIke

Pres. George Washington is said to have sold John Bill Ricketts a horse named "JACK" which the President rode during the Revolution. Washington attended the Ricketts Circus in Philadelphia, then the U.S. capital, during April of 1793. First Lady Martha was also present. Rickettsa purchased "JACK" and he was shown in a special stall at the circus. See my website www.rdricketts.com for more on John Bill Ricketts.

I really enjoyed A&E's presentation of Benedict Arnold. His name has always signified "traitor" to me. I think this production gave a fairly even handed picture of him.

He enlisted in the Rev. Army Halifax Co., Virginia Feb. 1, 1777. He served at Brandywine Creek, Monmouth Court House, Germantown and was at Valley Forge. Muster Roll for month of April - dated Valley Forge May 2, 1778. was private in Capt. Thomas Thweatt's Co., 14th Virginia Reg't. Commanded by William Davies. Pension #S39314. Discharged at Philadelphia 4th day of Feb. 1780, Christian Febiger, Col. Commander 2nd Virginia Regiment. I have enjoyed reading from the pages on this site very much, Regards, Charles F. Chunn Sr.

I love Valley Forge National Park. I go there a lot. My parents got married in the chapel! I went to a day camp there and really liked walking where George Washington and the troops walked! It is such a shame that one of the huts recently burned down.

I'm a decent of Jacob DeHaven.one of the loyal Americans who lent George Washington & the Continetal Congress at valley Forge over $100,000 in Gold,supplies & food..guns & arms & gunpowder..livestock..blankets, wiskey & ect.It was a nobel thing to do. It was to be repaid by the continal congress with 6% interest..till this day it has never been done.. All debts public & private were to be repaid. Pres.W.Wilson tried to have repaid but was not allowed.. in the 1980's I believe it went to the Supreme Court.. still no payment. I'm Proud to be an American & that my family was one of the many able to help win the war& our FREEDOM! It sure would be nice for Jacob DeHaven's desents to be repaid .. we live in a wealtly country...FREEDOM & Liberty for all. Im sure my family would do their part again if called upon.

Enjoyed your website. I came upon an email with the following; which prompted me to search the internet for Valley Forge information: "I want you to close your eyes and picture in your mind the soldier at Valley Forge, as he holds his musket in his bloody hands. He stands barefoot in the snow, starved from lack of food, wounded from months of battle and emotionally scarred from the eternity away from his family surrounded by nothing but death and carnage of war. He stands tough, with fire in his eyes and victory on his breath. He looks at us now in anger and disgust and tells us this... I gave you a birthright of freedom born in the Constitution and now your children graduate too illiterate to read it. I fought in the snow barefoot to give you the freedom to vote and you stay at home because it rains. I left my family destitute to give you the freedom of speech and you remain silent on critical issues, because it might be bad for business or politically incorrect. I orphaned my children to give you a government to serve you and it has stolen democracy from the people. It's the soldier not the reporter who gives you the freedom of the press. It's the soldier not the poet who gives you the freedom of speech. It's the soldier not the campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate. It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped with the flag that allows the protester to burn the flag! Please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our U.S. ground troops in Afghanistan, and the ones facing deployment to Iraq at this very moment - AND all over this world. Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Prayer is the very best one."

A friend told me that he saw a special on TV some months ago where investors wanted to make a part of Valley Forge Park a shopping area or build houses in the park. I told him I thought that would be difficult because Valley Forge is a historical landmark and I was always under the impression that historical landmarks could not be developed on. What can you tell me about this? Thank you.

This Christmas, I asked for my own book on George Washington. My family gave me the book called, "Washington", by James Thomas Flexner. His earnest attempt to protray the man, and not some whimsical hero, has accomplished just that: Whimsical...NO & Hero...Yes! A hero for today especially when it comes to being a man of character. Was he perfect, no...but his character definately was tested under fire and through the fire!...We live in a day and age when the character of being "American" is under fire...I call to 'arms of character' all Americans, young and old to 'rediscover' the spirit of character found in our founding fathers, who under the most intense and heated debates,circumstances, and most overwhelming odds (military-wise, equipment, travel, weather and disease, lack of funds), managed to bring to birth a nation...We must not succumb to complacency of our duty and obligation as Americans...we must discover for ourselves the great cost that each of them were willing to pay for freedom inorder that we claim the call to defend and preserve our heritage as a people of character, integrity, and deep resolve...Our love of Freedom!
