I have recently pruchased a painting in the UK entitled 'Redcoats at the Forge' painted by B. Hildick in 1893.Is it an incident in the War of Independence ? Is anything known about this artist? I can send a laser print Best wishes Roger Pope

I just want to say that I saw the kids page where you fill in comments for what they are saying as they cross the Delaware are insulting and anti-American. Free speech is one thing, but I hardly think that those comments represent the best of what people had to say. In a world where our "heros" are not worthy to stand with the brave men, like those from Valley Forge, I am disgusted that you would dishonor them and allow such trash to represent this site. I am tired of pandering to those who want to trash America and spit on the principles upon which it was founded, while siting their "rights" based on said principles. How about some self-discipline and remember that if you can't something nice or at least truly witty then don't say it all! This shouldn't be a place where you can spread your Anti-American views!
This is a cool Website!
this is a intresting and helpful site thank you for your help.

My ancestors were at Valley Forge and one was wounded at Bunker Hill. But although I am British my ancestors (not direct antedents; cousins etc.) were on the American side! Sorry, that's why i am fascinated by American history.

Sur les traces de Lafayette je suis venu faire une visite à George Washington. Je recommande à tout français de venir voir les lieux d'une petite participation française et que chaque américain a su nous rendre à maintes occasions en France. Que mes compatriotes ne l'oublient jamais !

Can you help me find out what daily life was like during the Revolution? All I seem to find all over the internet is, at best, biographies of the famous men and women that everyone already knows about. I need to know how families lived during those years. Especially store-owners or merchants in Boston. Can you help me?
Very informative. I was seeking an overview on Gen. Mad Anthony Wayne. I have one of his limited editions written in 1929 for sale.http://www.arisbooks-onlinebookstore.com I was surprised and impressed when this site appeared.
i like this website
scotty ward, cincinnati,oh [12-16-2005]
Nice website. I wish every individual in our country still held to the moral and God-fearing values that characterized our nation's beginning. "This is a degenerate age!" But it is thrilling to read about our Revolutinary War and how even if there were discrepancies among the Patriots, they put them away and fought together for what was important. "United we stand...."

My grandparents and family lived in Gen Varnums Headsquarters for several years. Grandfather was a farmer and farmed a food portion of what is now the Park. He built a house on the other side of the road that passes by the Hdqtrs. Later the farm was taken over by the government and claimed byEmminent Domain. The value of the property was disputed by my Grandfather but he was unsuccessful in obtaining any additional compensation My Mother and Father were married in the Valley Forge Chapel.

The one room school in the center of Valley Forge was an active school long after the Revolutionary period. My Grand mother taught school there until it was no longer active.

Dr. Samuel Clagett also served as a surgeon's mate during Valley Forge. His wife had received a pension for this after he died. He was from Maryland. He had been a student of Dr. Gustavas Brown. He served from 1777 to February 1780, he then resigned and went to sea. He died March 25th, 1821 at New Baltimore, Fauquier, Virginia.

I am about to take some British family members on a car tour historic sites including Paoli, Brandywine, Chadds Ford, Kennett Square, Whitemarsh and of course, Valley Forge. This is their first visit to the United States and I thought it would be fitting for them to visit the area after seeing Independence Hall. Your information was incredibly interesting and will give them a unique insight into the formation of the United States as it began to take shape through battles, philosophical discourse and courageous actions based on deep-held beliefs. Not to mention giving me a great education on early American history. As an immigrant to the US in my college years, I never had the chance to learn the stories and anecdotes of America's birth. I'll write back to let you know their reactions (and mine). Thank you for a wonderful website. Orna Wiseman

I would like to thank you for this well presented website covering the history of Valley Forge. With the basic illiteracy of Americans of our own history, it great to see so many sites such as yours that help us learn our history. It cannot be overlooked the importance of that winter at Valley Forge. The Continental Army that entered Valley Forge and the army that left the next year were not the same force. They were a true army now and ready to take on the British.

All I want to say is that Americans fought for freedom and people are saying that we shouldn't be in Iraq. But I believe that God gave us freedom and we should fight and give freedom to all the people in Iraq who lived in constent fear of being lead away into a torture chamber in one of the Palaces.

Whilst flying recently, I saw a cloud forming below me over the sea. It was a map of north& south america. North America dissolved into the face of George Washington enclosed by a large crescent. South America remained intact. I was impressed that america was going to be invaded by an Islamic force. Some american friends told me about washingtons vision, which I have now read on your website and it seems to concur with washingtons vision. John Jephson, Christchurch NZ

It seems to me that without french intervention the cause may have been lost. It also appears strange that the french would intervene as they were still a monarchy at the time. When the french revolulion started a couple of years later the french monarchy turned to Britain for refuge. Regards Bob Scott

Great web-site! Don't change! I had to look something up for school, and I found just what I needed. Keep it up!
Among the records that cite my fifth great uncle Abraham Buford (Beauford) serving as colonel under General Washington at Valley Forge is a letter from Washington responding to a court martial over which Col. Buford served as president. The transcribed copy: http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/mgw:@field(DOCID+@lit(gw100440 )) is found in The Library of Congress "George Washington Papers." Your website does not include Col. Buford as having served at Valley Forge. How do I go about rectifying this? Thank you. David Robertson

I was at the 1957 Valley Forge Boy Scout Jamboree with Troop 57 From Barstow California, We took the train too and from the Jamboree. I spent 5 months back packing and hitch hiking "auto stop" in Europe, Middle East and Egyp and on my way back visited the 1964 Boy Scout Jamboree in Valley Forge. In 1990 worked for Baker Diagnostics in Allentown PA and visited Valley Forge many times. Have to say thnk you for the men who help make the USA free. God Bless Larry Payne K6UNT, was KN6UNT at the Jamboree.

A total of 3 Boy Scout Jamboree's were held at Valley Forge . I visted the 1964 Boy Scout Jamboree at Valley Forge. Since 1937, the Boy Scouts of America has held a national Scout jamboree for Scouts and leaders of Boy Scout councils throughout the United States. More than 600,000 Scouts and leaders have hiked the trails, paths, and roadways since the first jamboree was held at the base of the Washington Monument on the Mall in our nation's capital. Since that time, 15 national Scout jamborees have been held. Three were held in the western United States at Irvine Ranch, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Farragut State Park in Idaho. Five have been held in Pennsylvania at Valley Forge and Moraine State Park. Beginning in 1981, Caroline County, Virginia, and Fort A. P. Hill have been the permanent site.

Hi, I have an ancestor, Aaron Belvin, from Gloucester County, Va. who was at Valley Forge until discharged in Feb. 1778. I have a copy of an affidavit attesting to his service (not an original). This and other documents attesting to his service are on file at the Va. State library. How do I go about getting his name listed among those who served? Thanks, Jim Belvin

I grew up in Monmouth County, New Jersey and spent most of my life in New Jersey. I went to college in the Trenton area and worked in the Justice Complex on the Delaware River before I moved to Atlanta. I have been to Valley Forge many times as well as Morristown and Clinton, New Jersey. Growing up where I did, I went to grammar school in Englishtown near where General Washington signed the court martial papers for Lee. It has given me a love and appreciation for General Washington and I only wish he were here in these perilous times for our nation.....but, I guess he is with us.

From President Washington's Farewell Address: "The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same Religeon, Manners, Habits & political Principles. You have in a common cause fought & triumphed together -- The independence & liberty you possess are the work of joint councils, and joint efforts -- of common dangers, sufferings and successes." -- United States, 19th September 1796 All who revere his memory should read in its entirety in order to fully appreciate his greatness. http://gwpapers.virginia.edu/documents/farewell/intro.html

I have heard that Martha Washington was the first person to serve waffles or pancakes with maple syrup. Do you know if there are any resouirces that might document this fact? Perhaps she served this at Valley Forge. Thank you!

Does anyone know the names of the French officers that came to the USA with Marquis de Lafayette in 1777? My uncle said that William Alexander Chatton was with Lafayette and that we were related to the Chattons from France who helped with the Revolutionary War.

I was raised a McIntosh, so am very interested in this story... enjoyed this wesbsite very much. Grandpa was Eugene McIntosh... very interested in going deeper into the McIntosh history.
Love the site. Legend has it that Pvt. William Benson of Eduard Lounsbery's 2d NY regiment was my maternal great grandfather many generations removed. The story says he died at the hospital at Fishkill NY in 1778, but his wife and young son moved to Allegheny Co and the following generations moved to Ohio and beyond.

The History section is brilliant. Perfect for a topical understanding of the situation. Under • An Anti-Washington "Cabal" •, however there are a few minor errors. 1) In the first paragraph it should be, "...an orgaized effort...", as opposed to, "...a organized effort". 2) The second paragraph should read, "...better qualified than the Virginian...", as opposed to, "...better qualified then the Virginian...".
