Author Visit with Tom Clavin
On December 19, 1777, some 12,000 members of America’s nascent Continental Army staggered into Valley Forge. The starving and half-naked force was reeling from a string of demoralizing defeats and barely equipped to survive the coming winter. The American Revolution appeared lost. As the days and weeks passed, however, George Washington was aided by a trio of home-grown generals, advisors and foreign volunteers led by Alexander Hamilton, John Laurens, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Within six months Washington had achieved his miracle. Valley Forge is the riveting true story of an underdog United States toppling an empire. Join co-author Tom Clavin for a talk about this seminal moment in the battle for American independence.
