Marching with Washington

June 16, 1778 Valley Forge Pennsylvania.
Today His Excellency General George Washington, Commander of the Continental Army, marched a force of 12,000 well trained and united citizen soldiers out of winter quarters at Valley Forge….
June 16, 2012 Patty and Al and a slightly smaller force ambled along a historic road for a half mile IMG_4566and whimpered piteously about our pain and suffering. 
There were Rangers in period costume and volunteers,  federal safety monitors,  blue lights on crossing guard vehicles, shady picnic grounds and the buzz of derailleurs on passing bikes.  It was sunny, reasonably cool, and there were storytellers, lots of storytellers
