This is a great site. I found my ancestor's name on the muster roll. He came in the spring after the terrible winter. We had one this week. I was very pleased to fine his name on the roll as having been there

I am a direct decendant of General Nathanael Greene. This is my order. Daryl R. Baisley → Frederick Baisley your father → Harry Baisley his father → Ella C. Greene Baisley his mother → Gabriel Greene her father → George Washington Greene his father Nathanael Ray died early in life and is buried with his father. the name Geroge Washington is wrong in the history books. George Washington greene is my great great grand father on my great grand mothers side. his grand daughter Elle C. Greene died on Red Mill Road in Peekskill, NY. This was my grand fathers house. → General Nathanael Greene his father → Jabez Greene his father

Hi, You have a Francis (Aerts)Smith listed as a surgeon from PA who served as a surgeon at Valley Forge on your "Who Served" page, but he is not listed in your muster rolls. Can someone help me find out more about him? I think you have him listed as a French officer, but he was really from Brussels. Thank you!

What happened at Valley Forge? Why was anyone there? I can't seem to find any info.
anonymous [12-12-2009]

Personaly, I think that all of this information throughout this website needs to be organized. I can't find what I'm looking for, without having to read a ton. Just my opinion!
Kelly, Ohio [12-12-2009]

so cool what happened at valley forge. G.W rocks. he's the true person who made us here standing. He still went on and on and on after all the sickness, coldness.......... for his country. He really wanted freedom. That shows that he is persistant and well-mannered.

Whatever the source of such great learning that enabled Mr. Washington to rise to such stature needs to be discerned and fostered to great extent if this country is to see another 230 years...

Dear Sirs: I am troubled by an appearance of a change in the text from the first time I read this account. The source is an epilogue in the first edition of the book entitled, Celebrations of a Nation, written by Lucille Johnston. In that recording,as I recall, the most feared battle was the second peril. I will trry to locate this again,and will appreciate your research into this discrepancy. Kindest Regards, Tina Stallings

When in the course of Human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and of natures God entitle them. A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which empell them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that the are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. ...

Every citizen should take note of Washington's prayer life, and realize that this great nation was founded and preserved by people of christian faith. I myself am not a particularly religious man, however I do think that when we go through our own private Valley Forges in life, we must remember what got Washington through. It was his faith. Thank you.
