    One thought on “Valley Forge”

    1. I read this because of going to Valley Forge and meeting General Washington at the winter encampment. He wouldn't shake my hand, insisting a lady should curtsy and a gentleman bow. We did and I was enthralled. It was dark and we walked out to the huts on a path lit by candles. The huts were open with fires going in each one. Yes, it was re-enactors, but I loved the whole experience. This book gives snippets from various lives of characters living through the winter of Valley Forge. Some of it wa [...]

    2. Interesting depiction by Kantor who won a Pulitzer 20 years earlier for ANDERSONVILLE which I have also read. Reread Andersonville for a short magazine feature and this one will serve for the same column come winter.A sort of crazy quilt of disconnected although related vignettes of all sorts of characters, both historical and invented. Zexellency (Washington) is seen through several lenses. The Markee (de Lafayette) is also portrayed as are some Brits. Although 2000 out of 11000 soldiers died o [...]

    3. Oh, Mr. Kantor Of course you knew that this oeuvre was not a novel. I only hope that you knew that the beauty of your prose [often it could be mistaken for poetry] astonishes as it always has. Let's not neglect the discovery and fun of the dialects it"Andersonville," no; not as brilliantly structured as "Spirit Lake" but worth a read? Ubetcha!

    4. A good read about the darkest days of the revolution for the fledgling Continental Army under Washington. The Courage and fortitude displayed in this work should remind us that there is something worth suffering and dying for. Freedom.

    5. The first Kantor book that Iread (several years ago) was "Andersonville" and it was excellent! I read this book a couple of years ago, and it was disappointing.
