Lorett Treese’s well researched book, Valley Forge: Making and Remaking a National Symbol, uses Valley Forge as a means for understanding how Americans view their own past and how Valley Forge has evolved to engage them in experiencing it. Amid the rolling hills of Southeastern Pennsylvania visitors can pass through the house that served as George Washington’s headquarters during his encampment at Valley Forge, 1777-1778. Others picnic or jog through the park, complete with monuments, re-created log huts and a Visitor Center, all built to pay tribute to the Valley Forge story. (Softcover, 269 pages)
