Freedom Of Information Act
The Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552, as amended), generally provides any person with the statutory right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to Government information in executive branch agency records. This right to access is limited when such information is protected from disclosure by one of FOIA's nine statutory exemptions.
FOIA regulations, instructions, general information, and instructions on how to file a FOIA request can be found on the Department of the Interior's FOIA page.
Additional information can be found at the National Park Service Reference Desk page.
If you would like information on how to file a FOIA request for documents held by Valley Forge National Historical Park you may contact the park FOIA officer at 610-783-1034.

Did You Know?
None of the original soldier huts remain. The huts that you see in the park today are reproductions based on the model that General Washington wanted the soldiers to follow. Despite a lack of tools and the relative haste in which they were built, most served as decent shelters for the troops.
