A Demographic Survey of the Continental Army
In recent years historians have learned more about the men who served in the American Army during the Revolution.

Valley Forge: Making and Remaking a National Symbol
Valley Forge really has several histories. There is the history of the Continental Army's winter encampment of 1777-1778, but there is also a history of how that particular story has been told-something the professionals call its historiography. And because the immense popularity of the Valley Forge story led to the preservation of a large physical site, there is in addition a history of what has been done at Valley Forge to pay tribute to this event, to illustrate it and evoke it, and to make its meaning clear to visitors. Interpretations of the Valley Forge story have changed over the years, and so has the Valley Forge landscape.
