This weekend, Jeff and I took a road trip and ended up in Valley Forge, PA. It had snowed a little the night before (as you may already know) and the countryside was just magnificent. It was a very, VERY cold day. Cold, with a blustery wind that chilled me to the bone each time I hopped out of the car to point and click. I imagine it was a lot like that when Washington’s army hunkered down within the four walls of this cabin, and others like it during the winter of 1777-1778. I don’t think you have to be a history buff to appreciate the courage this must have taken.
Think what it must have been like for Washington’s men, trying to sleep in these cold, hard bunks. How grateful are you tonight?
