Revolutionary Lecture Series: Outside the Encampment: Impact of the Valley Forge Encampment on the Local Area
Monday, April 8, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Located at the General Warren Inne, this event is part of A Revolutionary Lecture Series presented by the Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund.
We have heard many accounts of what went on inside the Valley Forge encampment, but very little of the impact on the local community. What did the people do with Washington’s army staying the winter and spring right in their own back yard? How far out were picket posts from the main encampment area? What actions happened to locals who lived along the roads leading into the encampment? Find out on Monday, April 8th, 2019 as the Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund welcomes local historian, teacher, and acclaimed author, Tom McGurie back to their speaker series.
