Baron von Steuben & the Valley Forge Winter

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

The hard winter of 1777, when the Continental Army was camped at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, was a turning point in the American Revolution, the moment when new drills and regimental regulations finally turned a ragtag collection of ill-supplied and often embittered enlistees into a more disciplined and professional fighting force capable of winning a war. University of Maryland historian Richard Bell will share this important story from the perspective of Baron Friedrich von Steuben, the Prussian immigrant with the unusual home life whom Washington tasked with achieving that critical transformation. Call the COA at 781-786-6280 to register.
