Nancy K. Loane talked about her book, Following the Drum: Women at the Valley Forge Encampment. In a book based on a decade of research, she describes some of the women who lived in the encampment with the Continental Army at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, during the winter of 1777-78, the circumstances that brought them there, and their role in the camp. Ms. Loane, who used illustrations during her presentation, also responded to questions from members of the audience.

This noon program from the Center for the Book was held in the Mary Pickford Theater of the Library of Congress, Madison Building. close
