Valley Forge Guest Book Archives: 2006
I was looking through google.com and I came upon this website! I was doing my homework on Valley Forge in American History. Your site has given me many interesting information. Thank you very much!

Samantha Youngblood, Louisiana [12-27-2006]
The bio on Alexander Hamilton contains both errors in facts and omissions in accomplishments manifesting a misrepresentation of Hamilton's character. Since this site is an historic resource on Valley Forge - you might want to mention Hamilton's comment to delegates Samuel Chase and other state's rightists (Jefferson, ex rel.) reticent to spend state money on provisions to feed and clothe the continental army; the only erecting barrier to imminent attack from the British: "Drivelers in the business of soldiership, and something much worse." The same might be said for your attributions to Hamilton on this site; clean that up, will you? For the sake of the ttenage boys who visit your site for their history projects, who might like to know who challenged the power-that-be in defense of the 15-17 year old boys who comprised a majority in the Continental Army and left their red footprints in the snow at Valley Forge.

I attended a leadership program in which the "facilitator" informed the group that "Washington didn't sleep alone at Valley Forge," implying that he was unfaithful to his wife. Is there any support for this accusation? Thanks

Ariel, New York [12-27-2006]
this website really needs more pictures if you did it would have really helped me more with my project also more colored pictures (graphic like blood and more pictures that were actually taken during the alloted time period)that would really help with getting those browine ponits that you actually need in order to complete the project. p.s. you could have helped me if you had graphic pictures.

I was interested to read that there was no clear evidence that Washington prayed at Valley Forge. I read on your site and in other places clear primary sources acceptable to a present court of law to prove that he did. Why make it seem like it is so doubtful? Let the facts stand without presupposition of doubt. Sincerely, Joyce Atkins Social Studies teacher

Our ancestor was a cousin of George, they had the same great grandfather. I thank you all for the info. It helps to know what happened during this time in our history and the impact of those living at the time. I wish to make our history come alive and be truthful, not someones opinion according to the authors viewpoint - which in todays society I feel is many times corrupted.
Hilda Patti C. Howell, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma [11-13-2006]
In our familly verbal history, they mention Mary Smiley being captured by Indians. Her brothers served with Lafayette as scouts in the Revolutionary War. Is there any record of this?
Bob E. Smiley, PhD, Indiana [11-13-2006]
I am a WW-II veteran who served in the US 3rd Army in Europe, 1944-45...It has been said of that era; We are "The Greatest Generation"....but, I would not hesitate one moment in applying that moniker to the men and women of the Revolutionary War Era and Gen. George Washington.

How can you say there is no evidence to prove the DeHaven family story is true. This just makes me a little upset because to my knowledge anyone can find the ggovernment I.O.U. document signed by the treasurer at the time and the late George Washington. If you would like to ask yes I am a desendet of MR. DeHaven in question and a part of the family and sometimes it seems some parties refuse to be a person of sight but rather they choose to be blind but I am just stressing known knowledge as seen in the Library of Congrees. If you view this as a opinion and not truth all i ask is that you research the material and as far as my answer goes if it's in the Library of Congrees then I have a feeling that it's the truth. My name is Christopher L. Drees and loving family member of the DeHaven family.
I am just looking for any information I can find on William B. T. Trego, my husband is a descendant.

i am a arnuke beast
Recently, I visited Valley Forge and in the gift shop found a book named “Campaign to Valley Forge by John F. Reed, Pioneer Press” were he notes a General Nash was taken to the DeHaven home in the now present Kulpsville, Pa. area, to recover from injuries at the battle of Germantown. Later he notes the Commander-in-Chief’s attend General Nash funeral that began at the DeHaven residence. Two different Dehaven’s appear within this web sites search engine for the Muster Rolls at Valley Forge. I sure Judith A. Meier, of the Historical Society of Montgomery County made some type of research effort about the DeHavens and Valley Forge, but as is with most historical research and genealogy mistakes abound. Then again who is Lorett Treese or John F. Reed for that matter, just cause they were able to publish books does not mean their facts are correct.

Hi . . . Awesome website. Thank you! I am doing some research on Valley Forge and was wondering if there is anyone I can speak with or email to ask a few specific questions I am having trouble answering. I checked the FAQ page with no luck. (ie: any specific information on the bounties offered to re-enlisted soldiers to return to Valley Forge after their furloughs? dollar amount? I reviewed your piece on the weather conditions during the winters of the revolutionary war . . . is there any raw data available for review to better understand how you drew your conclusions? (I have found conflicting evidence of the severity of the weather during the winter of 1777-78.) Do you have any maps that clarify the proximity of Valley Forge and the British troops housed in Philadelphia? Any statistics clarifying the effects of illness on the Continental Army during their stay at Valley Forge? I would so appreciate any help. Looking forward to your reply. Laura Flangel

Under "Who Served Here?" regarding Aaron Burr: There is no mention of the mutiny down in the "Gulph," which Burr, outnumbered, put down successfully. Most of the facts in his biography are true, but there is a sentence regarding the election of 1800, part of which reads, "...each loss he blamed on Hamilton." During the tie-voting in the House, Burr sent two letters to Jefferson affirming he (Burr)was to be the VP, and even offered to step down if necessary. These letters are a matter of public records. Second, although his defeat in the NY gubinatorial race had Hamilton feverishly working against him, his loss of the Assembly race in New York in 1799 shows no trace of Hamilton's hand. It was, however, pubically circulated that Burr's defeat was due in large part to his formation of the Manhattan Water Company, which participation was considered unseemly. As an historical researcher, I find many unprovable "facts" concerning Burr. There is no written evidence by Burr that he blamed AH for,"..each loss" as your bio states. The loss to Lewis everyone agrees must have infuriated Burr, but that is a reasonable assumption only! The other two incidents mentioned stand as I have related them. Burr had many faults, but talking or writing about them was very rare on his part. As long as no evidence exists, you should amend that sentence. The man is dead - it is up to the living to keep the record straight. Thank you. D.H. PS I visit Valley Forge occasionally, and am always delighted with the preservation, presentations and services. High quality indeed!

Charisma Boomer, Auburn Hills, MI [08-17-2006]
I find your web site very disturbing since you do have erroneous information posted. If the portion concerning Jacob DeHaven is wrong, how many other things that you have posted on your web site is wrong? In the matter of the DeHaven family and Jacob DeHaven...You are very sadly mistaken. It is a matter of Congress, US Treasury Dept, other documents, and even President Calvin Cooledge acknowledged the debt and said it needed to be repaid because it was a "debt of honor". I can't remember at this point, but either Jacob or his brother Peter was a solider in that war and that is a matter of record of soldiers. I agree with whoever Joy is who wrote you in 3/20/06. Maybe you should re-read her statement. You need to make sure you get your facts straight and that your "historical society" personell (if they are indeed that) get their facts straight before slandering anyone's family name or the name of someone who helped to provide what you and everyone who lives here enjoys this very day in in the USA. I would suggest that a retraction of your statement concerning DeHaven be entered on your web site.

Your information in regard to the service record of Major John Clark appears somewhat confused and blends together the biographies of two John Clarks. In his "Memoir", Major John Clark the spy-master says that he resigned in November, 1779, having completed two years' service in the Army Auditor's Office.
nicely done web site. easy to navigate and good for kids.
I remember my parents taking me to the Chapel in the 70's and telling me my father's name was engraved "in the belltower". I don't see anything about engravings of servicemen from WWII. Is there such a spot? If so, how would I find his name?
Celeste, Philadelphia [07-17-2006]
We were at Valley Forge this year, June 29th. Stayed about 3 hours and will try to get back again this fall. We have one ancestor confirmed serving there - Elijah Herrick, 2nd CT. Brigade and believe that the Lt. Hezekiah Tracy, 2nd CT. Brigade - Capt. Ben. Throop's Co is also a relative. We had a great tour guide [on the trolley] and really liked being able to take photos inside Washington's cramped quarters. Thanks! Just wish that your computer's had been up and running at the time. Is there anywhere [or place] that keeps all records of soldiers being at Valley Forge?

It is lovely to read about George Washington and what he did to change history and not let the english have their way. Even through he was closely related to England by family links. I am linked to George Washington through my Collingwood family links.

I'm a direct descendent of Pvt. Jacob Decker, who in his Revolutionary War pension related his time at Valley Forge. It's nice to see a site dedicated to the men and women who served at Valley Forge. As a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Pvt. Jacob Decker was my patriot, I am always researching and looking for information on the Revolutionary War.

Dear Sirs: My name is David Wilson. I am a playwright who usually writes Halloween plays, but this year I decided to write one for the Fourth of July in my hometown, Grantville, Georgia. I have always wished there was something on the Fourth about the American Revolution, and decided it was time to do something about it. So I wrote a play, "America, the Great". It is about two young men in the British Army in the French and Indian War when one saves the other from being massacred by Indians. The one who is saved introduces his rescuer to the woman he married. They become the best of friends, settling in Georgia. But when the American Revolution breaks out, they find themselves on opposite sides. But the one in the British Army leaves it over the cruel killing of a civilian by a British officer. He is re-united with his friend, and they are both with George Washington when General Cornwallis surrenders to him at Yorktown. I play George Washington, and am quite honored and humbled to play this great and Godly man. I have researched a lot about General Washington, and the more I read, the more I learn how great a man he was. I hope and pray I give my best performance yet on stage, and do justice to playing such a fine man. I hope our playmakers really put on a great show, and that this play becomes an annual event on the Fourth of July in Grantville, Georgia. I just wanted to share this with you. Take care. David A. Wilson Grantville, Ga. 30220

I wish you would remove the reference to Judith Meier of "The Historical Society of Montgomery Co" regarding the Jacob Dehaven question. I checked the officer roster of that society and her name is not listed. She is obviously wrong about Dehavens not having lived in the area prior to 1790. She probablly did not know that the original name was Americanized and one name was Indenhofen. The Skippack Historical Society has a picture of the Indenhofen Farm purchased by Gerhard and Herman in 1706. Certainly it is true that there is no proof of the famous loan, but it does a diservice to both your site and The Historical Society of Montgomery Co. to have her quoted as a representative of that worthy organization. Who exactlly IS she?
i am stronger than 2ooooooooo men
In your timeline you seem like many other people to ignore New Jersey.You mention South Carolina a lot at the end of the timeline but they were 2nd to New Jersey in battles fought on their soil! No other state had more battles fought in it during the war than New Jersey! After all New Jersey is called the Crossroads of the Revolution and the Cockpit of the Revolution .

I lost my mother when I was 12. She was a very serious person, and told me once when I was quite young, that I was a direct descendant of The Marquis De' Lafayette, from her side of the family. Later in life I remembered what she had said, and quizzed my father about it over a few beers in the Canadian Legion Pub. "Yeah, you and about 30 million other people, from what I understand he was quite a wh*re. I think he was quite wrong about that, and after reading The Marquis' bio I am quite proud of him.

My mother always told me that I was named Martha after Martha Ball who married George Washington. This was so very interesting for me to read. I have learned that Nancy Hanks (Abraham Lincoln's mother who was the son of John & Mary Mott are in my family tree.My geneology has been traced back to Wiltshire, England 1538.

In your timeline you pointed out the 1st morristown encampment but not the 2nd in the winter of 79/80 . This winter was the worst winter in a century . New York harbor froze over and there were approximately 26 snowstorms/blizzards.

I visited the park today and found it interesting, educating and beautiful. How ever, the was a sever lack of directional signs. If we didnt have the map, we would have been lost. Beautiful park, we wanna come back in the spring and fall. God Bless the USA!

hey dude this is sweet
I will always remember how Pres Washington thanked the The Marquis de Lafayette for the reinforcements he needed for the ill and tired troops - Washington lead to win - in the revolutionary war. It was truly an un-expected victory - no one ever thought our founding fathers could succeed in - but they did and so can we! Historic Valley Forge, from the Valley Forge Historical Society.

I have printed out all the NC men in Valley Forge Dec through June and find very few with any information. Please explain! Do you or do you not have complete records of these men on your Muster Rorr or other sources? If so, where may they be located? Need Roll numbers if located at Nation Archives or Library of Congress.
