Valley Forge Guest Book Archives: 2007
I Just came across this website of the hanging rock. j aubrey anderson was my father, richard platt, favorite uncle. We had the picture of the hanging rock in our house since we were kids. It's a part of our family history...in which we are very proud. Every trip out East included a vist to the hanging rock. We are decendedents of the Walkers, the McFarlands and the Platts...all from Gulf Mills. Thanks for the tour down memory lane.

You are claiming a flag to have been donated by a descendant of George Washington. http://www.ushistory.org/valleyforge/youasked/038.htm Several sources tell me George and Martha had no children. Martha and George raised her two from a previous marriage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_Washington

This page has helped me to better understand what happened in Valley Forge. I am doing a research project on this topic and this site has helped me. I chose this topic for research because I am now a Junior in high school and I used go to Valley Forge Elementary School. When I lived there, I went to Valley Forge National Historical Park every weekend, but barely understood anything about it. Researching it has now opened my mind to what really happened there and I am thankful for all the people who lost their lives there. They struggled so much for us.

I am in a sea scout ship, and my mom is the advancement person and when we have to get things from a scout shop we go to the valley forge scout shop to enjoy the scenes and see the nature. The one time we were there we were leaving and continueing on the encapement road path and we were thinking about all the deer we counted on the way in and how cool it would be to see a fox and we all thought about for a second and realized that it would be odd to see one during the day, and as we came to the top of the next hill we noticed a deer was looking at some thing and as we got closer sure enough a deer and a fox were stairing at each other. We took two other trips out there and saw the fox again.

Why isn't Pulaski mentioned within the list of Who Served? http://www.ushistory.org/valleyforge/served/index.html If he is good enough for the arch in the park, why not the web site... Also, is there a statue of him or will there be? And yes I am a Polish American.
Paula Haefner, Mechanicsburg, PA [10-26-2007]
I wish more of the trail maps were available. The place is VERY clean. Don't know if it is the people that go there or the respect for the park. It is too bad the buildings are not open later and there are not tours in the evenings. Realize this is a volunteer thing, but once or twice a month it would be nice. My dog and I walk there as much as we can. What a wonderful, historic place.

Great site! I'm working on the genealogy of Private Hugh Agar. I have his military records from NARA. The alternate spellings of his last name are confusing. His son was Enoch Aggings of Gloucester County NJ. My goal is to find Pvt. Hugh Aggings (Ager, Agin, Agar...) gravesite.
I have examaned the roster book at Valley Forge Visitor Center but find that Dr. James Tilton is not listed. Your website list him as serving there. His book on hospital design is featured in the center display. Were medical staff excluded from the roster as bring non military?

You question the weather or not the 15th VA was at Valley Forge that winter. In his June 4th 1818 pension request (pension certificate #15,059 - was granted - # S39192), my great, great, great-grandfather Jeremiah Bentley born May 1, 1759 swore that he served "in a company commanded by Capt. James Foster, in the 15th Virginia regiment, and in General Woodford's Brigade of Continental troops. That on the 14th day of January 1778 he joined General Washington's army at Valley Forge; at which time, said Capt. James Foster being dead, your petitioner served under a Capt. James Mason (to the best of his recollection) in the Regiment and Brigade above mentioned." This and some other pension info may prove that the 15th was present at Valley Forge, but was morphed into the 11th VA. Would love a response. Regards, George F. Bentley Jr.

Hi, I found this question posted. My father, a teacher had a tape of all the songs from this song-writer performer. I too am looking for a way to purchase copies of his songs. If you know of a way to order them or who the song writer is please contact me. The posted question, "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" Again thank you for your help, Terri from California P Jeffery, San Diego, CA [06-20-2001]

It was also decided in a federal court in Denver colorado and published in the denver post that the validity of the loan was true according to the US Government. The government tried to say that there was a statue of limitations on the loan and it was rule the their was no statue of limitations on the loan at the time it was loaned. and there for there is no statue of limitions on said loan. it was confirmed that the loan is realized and does exsist. in 1990 it was 147 billion at 4% compound daily such as recorded in court Federal court. If you would read the george washington diaries you will find were George Washington visited him many times after the war. And that in fact his family member even married a deheaven. Furture more Donald Deheaven the brother of Jacob was the man that the government hired to put together the first assembly line for guns and weapons and is how Washington and jacob DeHeaven got to know each other. I you would read Mr. Ross information filed with the family Geneology Center at the morman church in salt lake city, it would tell you the exact government books, pages and chapters filed at the library of congress. Most people just don't go all the way to find the truth. Infact the government owes. Donald DeHeaven a lot of money too. For the $50,00 Dollars he donated to war dueing the manufactuing proccess. And further more I have found the charters and logs of the 2 Brothers three ships in which they transported wine and other goods to the west indies and is were they got most of their money. How ever, the DeHeavens are from england and served the king by transporting goods for him and decided to stay a help develope the free land were they could make more money here. Need any more information please e-mail me. Sorry for the poor spelling kind of late here. I would like to read DeHeavens Journal Please help. Sincerely, West Slater

My brothers and I were born at Valley Forge Army Hospital. I am the oldest of 4 and was born in 1955. My father, Daniel Alexander was stationed there during that time. He was good friends with Andrew Prezybylski(I am not sure of the spelling). If you know my father or Andy or Howard Biggs let me know. I have lots of old memories of the place and the last time I was there was back in 2001. Although I live in Ma is still have lots of relatives in the King of Prussia, PA area.

Is there any way to obtain a full copy of the article listed below? My Great GrandFather was George Addison Learned (1849-1917). I also have a photograph of a N.Y State Historical Marker for General Learned's Brigade and their attack on the British on Oct 7, 1777. My father was certain that this Learned, General Ebenezer Learned was a direct ancestor. I would like to confirm that. I will cover any S&H costs for this. Thank you Dave Statezni The article by Charles William Heathcote, Ph.D., S.T.D., "General Ebenezer Learned: Courageous Patriot and Friend of Washington", The Picket Post, February 1958, published by The Valley Forge Historical Society

Sirs, I have recently commenced a study of Alexander Hamilton and his influence on the early struggles of the US in the civil war and most particularly the Philadelphia convention and the establishment of Federation. I have a copy of "Alexander Hamilton, An Essay on American Union" by Frederick Scott Oliver Published 1906.Can you recommend further reading. Please remember (1) I am an Australian not an American (2) I am seventy one years of age so material needs to be cogent but brief and three I am a little biased as to the worth of A Hamilton. I place him in the top four Political figures in your country. Lincoln, Jefferson and F.D.R being the others. Perhaps there is, in your country someone who would care to discuss these thoughts with me. I perhaps should wash out my mouth but I am leaning to the US system of Government rather than the Westminster system with which I have lived all my life.( I do not however propose revolution here in Australia to achieve change!)

FYI---VA31617, Richard Coleman, 2nd Lt., later 1st Lt., died of wounds the following day after he received them at the Battle of Waxhaws, SC, 30 May 1780. He was made Captain a few days before Col. Abraham Buford's defeat at the hands of Col. Tarleton (despite Gwathamey's notes that he "retired" in 1781). My ancestor, Cpt. Francis Coleman of the VA Militia, was brother and "heir at law" of Cpt. Richard Coleman.

More battles were fought in N.J. than any other state during the Revolutionary war. The winter of 1779-1780 was FAR worse than Valley Forge and the army was at Jockey Hollow near Morristown New Jersey that winter. Jockey Hollow became the nations first National Historical Park in 1933, 40 years before Valley Forge. New Jersey is where Revolutionary War history lives, come see for yourself. On Oct. 12, 2006 Pres. Bush signed into law a bill creating the "Crossroads of The American Revolution National Heritage Area" in N.J. It is time the country and the world learns the truth about the war instead of hearing all the tall tales like Valley Forge and Betsy Ross!

George Washington's third part of his dream unfortunately will come to pass within five or six years. Hillary will be President and the United States will be severely judged. It will be a nuclear attack upon the whole country. The U.S. computers will malfunction, and the U.S. will be helpless to the nuclear attack from China.

I was saddened by the responses allowed on the kids page for the picture of general Washington. They showed quite a lack of respect for what people suffered for the independance of our nation, and it shows that parents do not teach their children respect for anything. Its sad. Maybe you should send a copy of these responses to some appropriate government official to really show the sad state of affairs with our children today. Sincerely, Erin DesPres
