October 22 – The Life and Times of Baron von Steuben

Friedrich von Steuben's contributions instilled new measures of duty and professionalism in the American army. But who was he really? Where did he come from? Was he really a fraud, as some people say? Let's unpack von Steuben's life to find out what brought him here and allowed him to play such a large role in American history.

Fall campfire programs take place at 7 PM on selected Saturdays in the fall at Conway's Brigade.

Join a park ranger for an interactive evening by the campfire as we discuss unique
stories of Valley Forge and the American Revolution. The programs are located at Conway’s Brigade, and run for about an hour. Topics vary.

Accessible from PA Route 23. Park at the Von Steuben Statue parking lot or the
Varnum’s Picnic Area parking lot, then walk down the historic trace road to Conway’s Brigade.

Bring a flashlight, a blanket, and a jacket.

The program will be canceled in the event of rain, call 610-783-1099 before 5 PM to check on the status of the program.
