I have started posting to twitter and fb as if I were a member of Washington's troops as they head to Valley Forge. I am 2 days behind Washington. Have only three miles from Whitemarsh. Country is picked over & hard find wood We stopped at dark, huddled in field. wet, cold, can't stop teeth from chattering. Feet are numb. We have small fire but what little wood it wet and keeps going out. Farmers friendly but have nothing to give. At least British not following, so we set no guards. moving with stragglers, women & camp followers. Many sick hope sleep will come and i can dream of a warm hearth. GN
