Marching out of Valley Forge, June 19, 1778

On this day in 1778, Gen. George Washington and the Continental Army marched out of Valley Forge after a winter encampment that saw them lose some 2000 men to death and disease, yet a stronger army due to the training that occurred during the encampment. I spoke about Valley Forge, the Philadelphia Campaign of the Revolutionary War, and my novel, Becoming Valley Forge on Saturday, June 15 at a reunion of Schwenksville High School alumni. They gave me this great name tag, which I will treasure. You can read more about what happened at Valley Forge by clicking here, a blog I wrote in 2017 on my site,, that goes into much more detail, as well as in my novel, Becoming Valley Forge, on Amazon. God bless those Patriots! Peace—Sheilah
