The Valley Forge Report
The “Valley Forge Report,” completed in the early 1980s, provides the most comprehensive documentation available of the activities, struggles, and achievements of the people who served at Valley Forge in 1777-78. In order to tell the story, authors Wayne Bodle and Jacqueline Thibaut traveled to hundreds of archives, historical societies, libraries, museums, private homes, and universities throughout the United States, England and France to obtain as much original documentation as possible.
Now, thanks to the generosity of The Friends of Valley Forge National Historical Park, this important three-volume work has been digitized and made available online.
