So with our Mexican food cravings slightly appeased...we headed to Valley Forge. Just in case you are not quite sure what significance it holds, here is a brief definition:
Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, was the site of the camp of the American Continental Army over the winter of 1777–1778 in the American Revolutionary War. This was a time of great suffering for George Washington's Army, but it was also a time of retraining and rejuvenation.
Valley Forge was very educational, so beautiful, so rich in history, and overall an awesome experience. We stopped by the visitor center to pick up a map and plan our route. It was extremely hot so we opted to tour the area via car and stop at all the places of interest. There is this awesome running/walking/biking path around the area...but you'd have to be insane to do that on a day like this...although there were a few people running & riding bikes.
We enjoyed ourselves in the visitor's center and read about Valley Forge, it was nice to actually read about what we were going to visit, it has been a long time since history classes in school.
We drove around Valley Forge and stopped by a cool chapel...
We had an awesome time touring Valley Forge. It is really cool to learn about the early history of our country! Yet another adventure for the Montgomerys....we had an awesome day!!!!!!!!
