valley forge

A final national park stop before we arrived back in the northeast yesterday. At Valley Forge the girls were eager to find the monument to Baron Friedrich Von Steuben – they are fans of the baron from Ms. Power’s cool summer fun course on the American Revolution. We left a B bus quahog there in tribute to the troops and the winter of 1777.
Now we are homeward bound – will sleep in our own beds tonight!

  1. All kinds of celebration when you reach home!!! Did you know that they had a Steuben Day parade in NY right across 86th St. when I was growing up…I didn’t realize his historic importance!! What an accomplishment and then you can celebrate tomorrow too!! Love, mom
