Co-authors Bob Drury and Tom Clavin talked about their book. Valley Forge, and described how the defeated and demoralized Continental Army lasted through the harsh winter of 1777 and 1778 while encamped a day’s ride from British occupied Philadelphia. They told sometimes humorous stories about key leaders including George Washington, Baron von Steuben, and John Laurens, who held the troops together despite disease and desertions, while also preparing the army for battle. This hour-long talk is part a weekly reading series held at the New York City bar and grill, The Half King. close
